Circular economy - with head and hand
HolyPoly is not an "aloof consultancy", but a team of experienced professionals from different fields. Therefore, behind every HolyPoly concept there is a lot of practical know-how from plastics recycling. Grounded in these facts, the team tackles the tasks and moves forward step by step. On the computer, in production - and always including good advice.
Possible together: A world in which recycling plastics is no longer the exception, but a matter of course.
One ton of recycled plastic used avoids two tons of climate-damaging CO2. Every recycled product saves waste from incineration and reduces the consumption of petroleum. A simple calculation. Time to leverage this potential.
Recycling - for the love of plastic
Many things that make life wonderful are made of plastic: records, table tennis balls, keyboards or eyeglass lenses are just a few examples. The problem is that every day vast quantities of valuable plastic are destroyed in incinerators and landfills or even lost in the environment. As a result, plastics end up in places where no one enjoys them: in the ocean, at the North Pole, in our food.
The good news is that they are perfectly suited to being recycled. High-quality technology products, household goods, toys or medical devices can also be made from recycled plastics . Theoretically. In fact, in practice, just 10 percent of new products manage to use recycled plastics in series production. Changing that - that's exactly what the people at HolyPoly are working on.

From the road to the future
The HolyPoly story literally began "on the road": With a mobile DIY recycling project, a few idealists went first through the city, then through the country, and finally all the way to the European Commission in Brussels between 2016 and 2019. Lessons learned: "There are many obstacles on the way to industrial plastic recycling, but no one to clear them away." The team took this as a mission and founded HolyPoly in Dresden in 2020. The expertise grew with the addition of further specialists, and with it the competence to remove recycling obstacles for plastics companies.
The working world of tomorrow, lived today
Because a sustainable society needs not only recycled plastics but also new working environments, HolyPoly starts in its own company. In its own coworking space UMzentrum, HolyPoly and friends work in collaborative organizational forms on the sustainable transformation of the economy and society.
