Lebanon, PA – A collaborative effort between Regupol America, the inventor of recycled rubber flooring for athletic surfaces, and the Pennsylvania Recycling Markets Center (RMC) has resulted in Regupol America earning GreenCircle Certification.

GreenCircle Certified, LLC provides third-party certification of sustainable aspects of products and manufacturing operations. Manufacturers, suppliers, regulators and consumers are assured that products labeled with the GreenCircle Certified mark have been thoroughly assessed and their claim verified. Regupol America is the first company in Pennsylvania to earn the certification.

As a non-profit organization, the Pennsylvania Recycling Markets Center is a leader in developing and expanding recycling markets in Pennsylvania. The RMC is the keystone clearinghouse of environmental, economic development and manufacturing resources for end use support of recycled commodities and products.

“Working with the RMC has facilitated some significant achievements for Regupol, namely third-party certification through GreenCircle Certified,” said George Soukas, Regupol America president. “As a company, we know the sustainability characteristics of our products and that they are ideal for a market with an increased emphasis on sustainability and green building. But the market is also seeing many similar claims when it comes to green products. We want our customers to rest assured that our products meet the highest qualifications and that our claims have been thoroughly verified. This certification gives us that stamp of approval and opens up possibilities for additional LEED points for customers who use our products.”
