Plastic Bank’s mission is to stop ocean plastic by gathering a billion people together to monetize waste and improve lives. By focusing on the root cause of the vast majority of ocean plastic (extreme poverty), The Plastic Bank aims to effectively “turn off the tap” of plastic flowing into our oceans by creating value and redirecting it to the collectors on the ground lifting them out of poverty.
A solution we can all get behind
The overwhelming size and audacity of Plastic Bank’s goal along with their multifaceted approach peaked our interest the moment we heard about the program. We decided to get involved because we feel their root cause solution addresses a previously overlooked aspect to cleaning up the oceans while at the same time dramatically improving the lives of those involved with the organization at all levels.
