Recycled Acrylic Available

  • LPM offers products made from Recrylic – the only Certified (RSS and GSC) 100% post-consumer waste recycled acrylic in the market. It helps meet and exceed organizational sustainability goals.
  • All LPM orders that use Recrylic will receive a Carbon Savings Estimate to show how much CO2 you have saved from being released by using recycled acrylic in place of traditional acrylic.
  • Recrylic is local for us. We are located 10 miles from their manufacturing facility, which further cuts down on shipping distance and total embodied carbon.
  • As a closed-loop recycling process, our recycled acrylic is both recycled and recyclable – over and over again.
  • Our acrylic scrap is sent to Recrylic to be made into more Recrylic sheets.
