In Pennsylvania, Braskem, a leading biopolymer producer and the largest polypropylene producer in the Americas, is entering into a nine-year sustainability-focused partnership with The Philadelphia Eagles, building on the team’s long-standing commitment to environmental and community development programs.
The partnership includes the development of a closed loop recycling program for bottle caps and other plastic products and an online education platform for 30 Philadelphia-area county schools to teach students about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) career opportunities to inspire the next generation of STEM leaders.
As partners in sustainability, the Eagles and Braskem will work closely on developing and fostering eco-friendly solutions for communities throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. Unique to this new partnership will be the utilization of recycled bottle caps that Braskem will collect at Lincoln Financial Field and the NovaCare Complex, the team’s practice facility. The collection and recycling process will be highlighted at an interactive fan zone located on Lincoln Financial Field’s HeadHouse Plaza.
