Plastic Bank Stops the Flow Of Plastic Waste Into Our Oceans
Currently, more than half of plastic produced is designed to be single-use, and less than 9% is recycled. Today, over 5 trillion pieces of plastic litter the ocean. The most famous accumulation of discarded plastic is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, an area of floating plastic pollution approximately three times the size of France. To fight plastic pollution, society must move away from the linear model of “Take, Make, Dispose”, and instead embrace a circular model that recycles and reuses the same resources indefinitely.
Plastic Bank promotes the circular economy by monetising plastic waste. Their collectors receive a premium for the materials they collect which helps them provide basic family necessities. The collected material is reborn as Social Plastic® which can be easily reintegrated into products and packaging as part of a closed-loop supply chain.
Not only does Plastic Bank prevent ocean-bound plastics from reaching our waterways, but they also reduce the number of new plastics being created by encouraging companies to switch to recycled sources.
Plastic Waste Becomes A Valuable Currency for Local Communities
Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities and reprocesses the materials for reintroduction into the global manufacturing supply chain. The plastic is sorted, weighed and exchanged for digital tokens that can be redeemed for basic necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance.
Plastic Bank has helped over 5000 people in Haiti, Brazil, the Philippines, and Indonesia earn a fair, sustainable income by collecting plastic waste.
Plastic Bank is helping the world stop ocean plastic while improving the lives of those who collect it.
Plastic Bank currently operates in Haiti, Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Egypt. To maximise positive impact, Plastic Bank selects its location sites based on three core criteria: high unemployment, high poverty, and high plastic pollution. In doing so, they directly contribute to 14 of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
Blockchain Technology provides transparency and traceability across the entire value chain
Plastic Bank uses cutting edge blockchain technology developed by IBM to transform plastic waste into digital tokens, which can be safely stored and traded. Plastic Bank’s proprietary platform secures the entire transaction and provides real-time data visualisation across the value chain – allowing for transparency, traceability, and rapid scalability.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Plastic Bank is recognised as an innovative, market-based approach to helping the world stop ocean plastic while improving the lives of those who help collect it. They have been endorsed by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and received the UN “Momentum for Change” Climate Solutions Award.
