The resin was used to create toy cars, known as Plastivans, in honor of the
National Plastic Center’s mobile teaching vehicle that visits schools
throughout the country to teach students and teachers about chemistry and
plastics.

The vehicles, available in purple and blue, will be distributed through the
Michigan Association of United Ways and the Lions Club of Washington, Mich.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of companies like Chevron Phillips
Chemical and others that make these vehicles possible,” said Scott Dzurka,
president and CEO of the Michigan Association of United Ways. “Because of
their donation we’ll be able to provide toys to children who might not
otherwise receive much during the holiday season. It’s a privilege to be on
the receiving end of such a large donation.”

The contribution is part of a program hosted each year by the Detroit Section
of SPE, which provides an opportunity for its members to sponsor the
materials, time and production of toys to help underprivileged children. Since
the beginning of the program in 2000, SPE members have helped donate nearly
400,000 vehicles to boys and girls throughout Michigan.

The polyethylene resin used to build the 2012 vehicles was manufactured at
Chevron Phillips Chemical’s Cedar Bayou plant in Baytown, Texas.
