Plastic pollution is one of the greatest environmental issues we are facing since it affects all life on earth from land to the sea. Collecting and recycling it means saving ecosystems and having to produce less new plastics, thereby avoiding CO2.
Collecting plastic waste empowers local communities with income opportunities and raises awareness to fight waste pollution in the countries the projects are active.
We work with local partners in the Global South that collect, sort, recycle and co-process waste from land, rivers and coastlines - protecting both ecosystems and local waste pickers & fisherman communities.
All projects involve local communities, giving help to self-help. Cultural traditions are strictly considered.
We work with projects that include social and/or environmental co-benefits.
There is no illegal dumping of the waste & the fate of the waste is clearly reported.
Only projects with high ethical standards and fair wages are chosen after a careful due diligence.
We choose either projects already able to properly track or monitor the trees or projects which we can empower.
All our projects support SDGs and have a special focus
tailored to their region.
