New Zealand Humanitarian Appeal

From the 2010 earthquakes in Haiti, to Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Ike on the U.S. Gulf Coast and the 2004 tsunami and earthquakes in Asia Pacific, the plastics and chemical industries have always lent a generous hand with both monetary contributions and in-kind donations.

The recent Christchurch earthquake is no different and SPI is spearheading an industry-wide effort to produce and ship 4,000 portable toilets to New Zealand. While one portable toilet manufacturer has already graciously offered to manufacture and ship 50 units at no cost, SPI is asking the rest of the industry to help fund the overall effort. Please help so that we can raise the $1.5 million necessary – in both cash donations and in-kind contributions of resin and colorant. Be assured that 100% of your donation will be used directly for this effort’s production and shipment costs only.

Please click the “Donate” button above to donate via PayPal. If you wish to make a cash or in-kind donation directly without going through the website, please contact Susan Douglas, at 202.974.5224 or email her at
