The ECOSENSE FOUNDATION is a non-profit organization that promotes the use and recycling of thermoformed PET containers within the framework of the Circular Economy Strategy on Plastics by means of certification, awareness and collaborative projects. Plastic Sense is the owner of the ECOSENSE and the RETRAY certification schemes: ECOSENSE is a process certification that provides transparency and traceability in the introduction of recycled PET from a tray-to-tray system and  RETRAY is a product certification focused on verifying  the recyclability of post-consumer tray and quantifying the amount of recycled PET incorporated.

It started operations in 2017 at the behest of companies within the industry and the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Environment, seeking to provide transparency and visibility for the work performed by companies in the thermoformed PET containers value chain in terms of sustainability and circular economy.
