MIAMI, Fla.—Thema Optical has announced a new recycling program in partnership with the international recycling company TerraCycle. TerraCycle specializes in collecting and re-purposing hard-to-recycle waste through a variety of platforms, including large-scale recycling, which helps manufacturing facilities like Thema recycle large volumes of waste. Under this new program and with TerraCycle’s help, Thema will recycle excess acetate left over from their manufacturing process. This recycled acetate will then be processed into sheets and used to make new acetate products.

Giulia Valmassoi, chief executive officer of Thema Optical’s North America branch, said, “Thema is a global company that respects the importance of sustainability and the major role each of us plays as stewards of our earth. Partnering with TerraCycle has made it possible to implement this new recycling program in our facility.”

TerrraCycle CEO Tom Szaky said, “At TerraCycle, our mission has always been to eliminate waste, recycle the unrecyclable and use our innovative business solutions to minimize human impact on the planet. It’s through partnerships like the one we enjoy with Thema that allow us to fulfill our objective and help preserve the environment for future generations.”
