Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 4.0

Pre consumer or Post consumer recycled material 

Recycled Material : Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 4.0

Recycled plastics (post consumer, pre consumer) are used in a wide variety of applications. Recycling aims at environmental sustainability by substituting raw material inputs into and redirecting waste outputs out of the economic system. With the advancement of global sustainable development and a low-carbon economy,the concept of recycling such as garbage sorting and plastic recycling is reshaping our lives and showing unprecedented attention. 


l   The use of fossil resources can be reduced with plastic recycling system.

l   Reduces the loading of landfill by waste cut-down.

l   Recycling can lower the energy consumption and also the emission of greenhouse gases compared with the production of virgin resin.

In terms of pursue resource recycling and protect nature, Supreme is striving to create environmental protection values in the recycling and reuse of waste plastics and will obtain the “Global Recycled Standard” 4.0 (GRS) certification in 2020.

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 

The Global Recycled Standard (GRS) 4.0 is an international, voluntary, full product standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled content, chain of custody, social and environmental practices and chemical restrictions and to increase use of recycled materials in products and reduce/eliminate the harm caused by its production.

Industrial or post-consumer recycled material?

Supreme recycled material does not always come from the same source. Some of it is taken from in-house industrial waste, whilst some is taken from post-consumer recycling but it must be certified by GRS

The two types of material can have very different properties, so we have marked up all of our recycled products with an icon to explain which of these two categories they belong to:

Industrial recycling – Supreme factory will collect from scrap polythene gathered during the manufacturing process. By capturing this plastic waste before it reaches the consumer, we can ensure that recycled products achieve a high level of quality and consistency, although they do not offer the same level of sustainability or closed-loop recycling.


Post-consumer recycling (PCR) – Supreme will purchase the material which is certified by GRS supplier. Plastic from products that have been disposed of, collected, cleaned, reprocessed and recycled into new products. GRS is the high standard of certification which ensure the recycled material is real but not pretend as recycled material.
