Orange Plastics, as a plastic manufacturer, is aware of its responsibility for tomorrow’s world.
Our sustainable production process raises the bar of corporate social responsibility in plastic production. At the same time, it offers a cost advantage for our customers. Orange Plastics focuses on smart and sustainable engineering, low energy consumption and minimal waste. This is made possible by our partnership with Return2Sender, in short R2S. Working together in a sustainable way for a better future world. Read more below.
R2S aims to ensure that plastic manufacturers are producing in a sustainable way. This is done in an innovative way of recycling.
It’s a smarter way of re-using. Products with the R2S logo can be sorted by their exact plastic specification. Due to the thorough knowledge of the plastics, the same products can be used to recreate an equivalent product. This is different from traditional recycling, where valuable plastics are combined to produce low-grade products.
Through our collaboration with R2S, we reduce the use of fossil fuels at the start of the production chain. After all, by sorting to plastic specification, the same type of plastic can be used.
An additional advantage of this recycling method is that plastic products that normally end up as waste, can now be used in a meaningful way again. This means less pressure on our waste management system. Twice as good for the environment! But also for you as a supplier of these products.
R2S’s advanced calculator maps out exactly how much CO2 you will save. The aim is to produce 100% climate neutral and R2S requires the same from its partners. Through the use of green electricity and the possibility to realize forests with optimal CO2 uptake.
R2S is not only good for the environment, but also for your bottom line.
In addition to reusing your old products as a raw material for your new products, R2S allows you to save money in your own production chain by contacting the consumer directly.

During the process of making a design, we also look at the possibilities to make the design in such a way that it can be processed in a sustainable way. This means that we try to make products as much as possible of the same type of plastic and not add other materials such as metal or silicone, which would make it more complicated to re-process the plastic. At Orange Plastics, smart engineering also ensures that as little waste as possible is left over after the production process has finished.
At Orange Plastics, we try to coordinate the production process as optimally as possible and to make minimal use of fossil fuels. We urge our partners to make as much use of renewable energy as possible and try to keep transport to a minimum. In addition, we use an extensive machinery with machines of different sizes and sizes. It is important to find out on which type of machine a product should be produced and thus make the most of the used energy. A small product in a small mould needs very little pressure and therefore does not need a large machine. Learn more about this process? Check out our OPA videos!
