MILWAUKEE — To continue combating the global issue of recycling, SC Johnson has committed to making 100 percent of its plastic recyclable or reusable by 2025.

“Environmental leadership has long been a part of the DNA of our company,” said CEO Fisk Johnson at GreenBiz 2019.

“Trust in business is at an all-time low today, and trust is the thing that keeps our consumers coming back to buy our products. I think one of the important ways that people decide to trust a company is how you treat people and the planet.”

In April, SC Johnson will launch the first 100 percent recycled ocean plastic water bottle for Windex.

In addition, Plastic Bank CEO David Katz and SC Johnson have opened eight plastic recycling collection centers to improve recycling rates in the area.

“I want to continue the momentum that’s building out there around awareness of this issue, because that’s going to help us solve it,” Johnson said in a news release.
