We transform party cups and ocean plastics into sustainable fabric.
Over 90% of plastics are not recycled globally. The New Norm addresses this issue head-on. We specifically target plastics that are not commonly recycled in our existing infrastructure and transform them into sustainable, wearable fabric.

How it's Made
#1 Party Cup Manufacturer Funds Innovative Startup
Reynolds Consumer Products (Nasdaq: REYN), the manufacturer of the iconic red Hefty® Party Cup, is taking a significant step towards sustainability by supporting The New Norm, a startup out of Johns Hopkins University. The New Norm has developed an exciting, novel technology that transforms material from these cups into sustainable yarns and fabrics. Recognizing the immense potential of this innovation, Reynolds Consumer Products, whose Hefty® brand is known for the #1 Party Cup in America, has provided a grant of $125,000 to assist The New Norm in their research and development efforts.
