All plastics are non-biodegradable and thus builds-up in the environment, where it can cause harm. For example, approximately 8 million tons of waste plastic enter the Earth's oceans every year, causing damage to the aquatic ecosystem and forming large soil and water body garbage patches.
Pre-consumer recycled plastics are materials that were rejected before they were ready for consumer usage. Manufacturing discards are being reintroduced into the manufacturing process through pre-consumer.
Plastic that was used to make an item and then discarded, gathered, cleaned, and recycled is known as post-consumer. Post-consumer plastic products close the loop by diverting spent plastic away from landfills and toward recycling facilities.
