Muntinlupa, August 1st 2023 – The Plastic Flamingo, a pioneering leader in plastic waste recycling, is thrilled to announce the successful inauguration of its new recycling facility.

The brand-new facility, located at Muntinlupa, is a testament to The Plastic Flamingo's dedication to a cleaner environment.

We, the founders of the Plastic Flamingo, are French, and we chose to come to the Philippines 5 years ago with a mission, which is to participate in the fight against marine plastic pollution. Indeed, we believe that this challenge has no border. It is our responsibility - for all of us - to address this issue where it is the most crucial, especially in South-East Asia."

The Plastic Flamingo has always been at the forefront of environmental innovation. The company's core values revolve around fostering partnerships with local communities, environmental organizations, and industry leaders to amplify the impact of their sustainability initiatives.
