PLUS Compound Technologies® offers a true closed loop solution to manufacturers, brands and consumers seeking products that have minimal impact on the environment.
PLUS compounds are well suited for many applications and can be readily used as environmentally-friendly alternatives to traditional foams (EVA & PU), rubbers and plastics.
PLUS compounds were created by a team of industrial designers, engineers and manufacturing experts alongside world class athletes to produce the most innovative goods on the market today.
With traditional materials, post-manufacturing scrap is incinerated or pushed into landfill. With PLUSfoam, it’s recycled at the factory and used for new production. Virgin PLUSfoam is manufactured and any fallout is mixed back in immediately. Additionally, if there is any post-manufacturing scrap, it too is reprocessed and reused on the spot.
We understand that your products are sold around the world, which is why we’ve built a strategic network of reclaim centers across the globe. Our custom-built reclaim portal collects consumer information and generates a return shipping label that facilitates the return of a PLUS product. We’ll handle everything else from there.
Our in-house design and marketing team works with our brand partners to craft consumer reclaim incentives, industry press releases, trade show marketing materials and much more. We also coach our partners on how to explain PLUSfoam and its unique recyclability properties to consumers, reps and retailers.
We’ve partnered with a select group of brands who make great products and are aligned with PLUSfoam’s environmental mission.
“In the true sense of partnering, the team at PLUSfoam continues to provide excellent service, whether they are adding value to the design and development process or responding to sample request… The PLUS team is creative, thoughtful and awesome to work with!” -Patrick Kruse, Ruffwear Dog Toys
“We’re very excited to be able to incorporate PLUSfoam into our entire product line. Our intent from day one has been to provide a more sustainable product, and making our sandals with PLUSfoam is the solution to our biggest obstacle as we are finally able to move away from the alternative, more harmful materials. The PLUS team has made the transition smooth, and kept us educated and informed. I only wish it had been available sooner.” – John Eades, Vere Sandals
