Plastic Responds

America’s Plastic Makers Respond to COVID-19

America’s plastics makers are proud to help support healthcare workers and all who are working so hard to save lives during this COVID-19 pandemic.

To respond to these challenges, many companies have increased production of the materials needed to make personal protective equipment (PPE) and other critical medical supplies and gear. And some companies are donating plastics to organizations (e.g., manufacturers/universities/organizations with 3D printers) that today are producing additional PPE for those on the frontlines. And many are donating their time and money.

America’s plastic makers and our employees stand together with our communities, healthcare personnel, and other essential workers in the fight to end this crisis.
