Join the Movement
We offer multiple options to help you reduce your plastic footprint
Champion sustainability with Social Recycling
We are a movement of people who believe plastic should not flow into the ocean to begin with.
That is why we are guiding consumers and brands to stop ocean plastic, empower collection communities and create authentic impact.
We call it Social Recycling. Join the movement, be part of change.
Stop ocean plastic at its source
Your journey begins at the root of ocean-bound plastic pollution — communities within 50km of vulnerable coastlines with high levels of poverty and inadequate waste management.
Traceability is at the heart of Social Recycling
Our proprietary blockchain-secured platform records every transaction and gives traceability to your impact.
Every kilo traced
Every kilo of plastic exchanged by age-verified community members at our collection branches is recorded in the PlasticBank® app.
Double-counting prevention system
Our proprietary blockchain-secured platform assigns a unique claim ID to every transaction, tracking all orders from the moment of exchange, all the way to our partners.
Custom reporting and data visualization
Our partners have access to impact dashboards with data visualization and custom reporting to share and celebrate progress!
Brands with purpose are driving impact forward
When it comes to brands with purpose, people are 4x more likely to purchase, 6x more likely to protect, 4.5x more likely to champion, and 4.1x more likely to trust brands with purpose.
Enabling circularity and transferring value
Members collect and exchange discarded plastic for income and life-improving benefits.
The collected plastic is processed and recycled into feedstock for re-use
Manufacturers fund collection by purchasing plastic feedstock or plastic credits
Recycled plastic gives new life to old plastic and substitutes the need to create virgin plastic
