A leading American arts programme is partnering with a bio-plastics producer to implement a pioneering new zero waste approach.

Mural Arts Philadelphia is America’s most impactful public arts initiative supporting around 100 projects annually. And Braskem is joining forces with it in a closed-loop recycling deal to ‘produce, collect and reprocess’ its plastic art supplies into ‘next-life’ products.

“Our artists and constituents create up to 100 new public artworks each year and go through many supplies, so our partnership with Braskem presents an exciting opportunity to find new ways to recycle plastics and to do our part for the environment,” said Jane Golden, Mural Arts Philadelphia Executive Director.
