The STC announced Monday, October 19th that Act Global is the recipient of the Sustainability Award, which recognizes an STC member organization that consistently, and through innovation, utilizes sustainable materials and processes.

The STC acknowledged Act Global’s commitment to reducing the use of virgin plastics and finding innovative ways to recycle plastics found in our oceans and shorelines. Working with supply partners, Act Global engineered an innovative way to take salvaged ocean plastic and synthesize it into a TPE infill.

A full-size multipurpose field was co-donated by Act Global and adidas to Miami Edison High School of Miami, Florida. Local partner, Burke Construction completed the installation in late January of 2020. Students set foot on the field for a 7 on 7 match during Super Bowl LIV Weekend, showing off their new surface made from recycled ocean plastic.

Act Global invests in maintaining environmentally sound products and business practices. They work with leading research and chemical firms to develop eco-friendly products such as infills, recyclable coatings, and other green innovations.
