a CLEANER world together


Circular Plastics is focused on permanent innovation, where measurable results are achieved in a circular economy.

We believe in a Consortium model in which we design packaging solutions on the basis of Concurrent Engineering with “Best of Class” partner companies, selected by us. Due to the enormous focus of the owners and CEOs of these companies, we achieve sensational results with very short lead times.

We strive for 100% upcycling, closed logistics circuits with guaranteed tracking and tracing of the recycled raw materials and the sustainable RTIs (Returnable Transport Items).

As a chain director we analyze all steps in the chain to the final design. This way we achieve a WIN / WIN in the field of Ecology and Economy for all links in the chain. Sometimes also by redistributing profit from one link in the value chain to another.

The 4 initiators and founding partners of Circular Plastics contribute five generations of know-how about collecting, sorting and upgrading plastic materials, paper and carton.


Together we guarantee a global presence and expertise in all areas from recycling to logistics pooling services in the field of B2B. And marketing knowledge of all current trends at Retail and the consumer with revolutionary solutions for producers, wholesalers and Retail in line with our B2C insights.

We can refer to experience with the development and production of more than 800 million sustainable packaging units or RTI’s.


  • 60 years experience in recycling and application in sustainable packaging

  • Hi-tech processes focused on optimum CO2 footprint

  • Solutions with a 25% profit for all links in the entire logistics chain

  • Global network through Partnerships in Recycling, Process Technology and Pooling Services with 100,000 customers in Retail, Flowers & Plants and AGF


Sustainability is becoming increasingly important for many companies. Various branches therefore wish to turn their logistics chain into a closed cycle. But where can profit be made? And how do you do that in a good way? We have started Circular Plastics Alliance to help companies with this.

As a Circular Plastics Alliance, we have a clear mission in the field of CSR. We strive for our participants to save 25% on their logistics chain and to reduce their CO2 footprint by 25%. This has a positive impact on the environment and on your company. Together with our partners, we work hard to achieve our ambitious goals. To this end, we are currently active in 24 European countries.

Circular Plastics Alliance is an initiative of Circular Plastics and its partners. Founded in 2019 by professionals with many years of experience in plastic recycling, packaging design, manufacturing and logistics. Circular Plastics has been working on innovations within the flower and plant sector, horticulture, the construction sector and air-cargo companies since 2015. Thanks to the recycling activities of the Circular Plastics Alliance partners, we have access to 300,000 tons of high quality recycled plastic per year. This offers opportunities for all our participants.

This high quality plastic has been 100% reprocessed by circular technology. The plastic is reused in sustainable flower foil, plastic labels for plants, plastic pallets and crates with a lifespan of about 7-10 years. In this way we work together on less plastic waste and a sustainable world.

“Let’s create a cleaner world together.”
