“I enjoy working with a collaborative and innovative team that is passionate about addressing the plastic waste problem we face. I truly feel like we are a part of something very special here at rPlanet Earth. As the Environmental Health and Safety Manager, my job is to ensure we provide a safe work environment for our team and that we operate a clean and environmentally compliant facility.”
"I joined because rPE shares the same values that I have when it comes to recycling, being green and doing the right thing for our environment and our planet earth. Recycling is important to me because I want to ensure that I am doing my part to reduce plastic waste in our landfills and oceans, so that my children and future generations can enjoy a healthy planet.
As the Supply Chain Manager I am responsible for balancing the Supply and Demand for the entire site, ensuring that there is communication amongst Recycling, Manufacturing, Sales and Finance so that both materials and information are flowing through the facility."
“My name is Juan Manuel Reyes and I decided to join rPlanet Earth to find myself a career where I can grow and an industry where I can learn new things. I want to be a leader to others and set a great example for this company.”
"After my college graduation, I knew I wanted to be a part of a diverse team that makes an impact on recycling sustainability and that is possible at rPlanet Earth. Given my engineering background, I have the unique ability to incorporate my knowledge and experience in taking on the challenges involved in the quality of our products."
“I wanted to work for rPlanet Earth because of their Vision, Mission, and Business mottos which align with my values in helping our Planet Earth be sustainable. I like a good challenge, the culture, and being able to implement a robust Food Safety & Quality Management System as the Quality Manager is an opportunity I had to take. I enjoy handing someone a direct food contact product and telling them this is made from recycled PET. Seeing their amazed reaction makes me love what I do even more.”
"All through my career I felt recycling and closed loop programs were the answer to keeping single use plastics out of the landfill. When I got exposed to rPlanet Earth and the Co-Founders Bob Daviduk and Joe Ross, I immediately saw their vision and that they had actually built a plan to execute a vertically integrated closed loop recycled packaging business that was actually a viable solution. A chance to be part of the solution and not part of the problem. After being in the rigid plastic packaging business for more than 30 years, the chance to be part of the solution to fix the world’s landfill and ocean waste problem is extremely important to me. I can’t think of a better way to finish out my career in this industry by helping rPE on this mission and bringing great products to market that were designed with their next life in mind."
