Our Approach

Evolve Resource Management (ERM) takes pride in the ability to recycle what, historically was not possible: mixed plastics and trash. ERM devotes time and energy into improving the environment by collecting mixing plastics, cleaning up our oceans, and taking part in landfill reclamation. We use our own processing technology to grind and clean plastics before using fusion molding to combine plastic pellets with short fibers to create products. Recycling is meaningful to all of us at ERM as we work to create a better, more sustainable, tomorrow.

Our Story

With over 100 years of combined experience in the recycling industry, we found a gap in the market: figuring out how new materials can be recycled and made sustainable. As technology in the world advances, so does our recycling plants.
