The Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) is a purpose-driven organization here to support the entire plastics supply chain. Our staff is proud to represent the nearly one million people who are employed by companies in the plastics supply chain. PLASTICS is a dynamic organization with an ambitious team, striving for growth and success. Together we shape the direction of the entire plastics industry and as a job requirement, have some fun while doing so. Employees have the opportunity to grow, learn and impact both the industry and our association. We also encourage volunteerism.  As a staff, we work to keep two blocks of K Street clean and participate in river clean ups and recycling initiatives. 

We offer generous benefits including health, dental, vision and life insurance, competitive salaries and a 401(k) plan with employer contributions. We work hard, we play hard and we value a work-life balance. In fact, employees take personal time off at their own discretion.
