Circularity is at the heart of what we do – and that’s been the case now for the last 30 years since Smile Plastics' inception.
One of a kind. Every time.
Here at Smile Plastics, we’re dedicated to breathing new life into would-be waste materials. Our 100% recycled and recyclable plastic sheets, designed and made in the UK, contribute to the circular economy our built environment desperately needs to survive. As part of this, we have chosen to tell a material’s story through its surface.
It quite literally wears its lifecycle on its sleeve. Whether it’s the glimmer of yoghurt pot foil or the monochromatic flash of a barcode, it’s a visual reminder of how plastic plays a part in responsible material selection now, into the future.
The materials in our Collections are made from would-be waste, such as discarded chopping boards, cosmetics bottles, and yoghurt pots. Each sustainable plastic material is available in two sizes, supersized or large, making them perfect for a variety of projects.
More choice & shorter lead times
We’re accelerating the scaling up of our operations – doubling our production lines and trebling our capacity. Our 100% recycled plastic sheets can be produced 24 hours a day, seven days a week, diverting 1,500 tonnes of plastic waste in the next year alone. This means more material choice and shorter lead times, so that regardless of the size, scale, or turnaround of your commercial project, we can meet your needs.
Cut to size
As part of our commitment to meeting your unique project needs, we proudly offer a 'cut to size' service, providing tailored solutions for your specific requirements. Our skilled team meticulously cut our collection of sustainable plastic panels to your desired dimensions or shapes, ensuring precision and quality in every piece. Whether you seek custom shapes, specific dimensions or unique designs, our cutting service adds convenience and customisation to your projects.
