Hi-Cone Employees Participate in Forest Clean-up in Mexico

Hi-Cone employees from our Tlalnepantla plant near Mexico City recently led their families, friends, and volunteers from Grupo Modelo at the Limpieza de Bosque de Chapultepec (Chapultepec Forest Clean-up) in Mexico City.

In Hi-Cone Mexico’s first clean-up event, we were proud to partner with our customer Modelo as part of their larger campaign, #voluntariosmodelo. By organizing a clean-up in this public park, we helped to bring awareness to waste education and recycling, subjects that both companies care about.

International Coastal Cleanup Barcelona, Spain

 

Over 107 Hi-Cone employees, friends and family again joined forces with the Ocean Conservancy, Ambiente Europeo and International Costal Cleanup España to make a difference in the communities in which we live and work. This year’s event was at Arenys de Mar, Barcelona, Spain. Hi-Cone is proud to be part of the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection, which provides the only empirical database about animal entanglement. Once again, our efforts show that ring carriers are not a significant cause of litter or animal entrapment issues. Of the 3,852 items collected, zero ring carriers were found.

 

 

Hi-Cone ring carriers can easily be recycled via yellow recycling bins in Spain. Hi-Cone is working hard to create a world where plastics need never become waste and to keep our oceans and beaches trash free. #CollectivelyWeCan

We’ve Signed the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment

Hi-Cone is proud to have joined the growing list of companies leading the way towards a circular economy for plastics by signing the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment in February 2019. We are holding ourselves accountable to our goals and helping create a world where plastic need never become waste.

We’ve launched RingCycles™, a multi-packaging solution that contains +50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content. This is a critical step in Hi-Cone’s environmental responsibility commitment as well as its goal to deliver a 100% recyclable, biodegradable or compostable alternative by 2025.

Adopt-a-Beach program at Chicago’s Osterman Beach

On Saturday, September 21, 2019,  Hi-Cone employees, friends and family again joined the Alliance for the Great Lakes for its Adopt-a-Beach program at Chicago’s Osterman Beach. The annual Adopt-a-Beach event has been part of Hi-Cone’s service culture for over 25 years.

Hi-Cone is proud to be part of the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection, which provides the only empirical database about animal entanglement. Once again, our efforts show that ring carriers are not a significant cause of litter or animal entrapment issues. But even one ring carrier or piece of plastic is too much, so we continue to work to ‘create a world where plastic need never become waste.’
