Ocean-bound plastic

Ocean-bound plastic has not yet found its way into the ocean. This represents plastic that is found on the ground within 50 kilometers of a waterway or coastal area, and is otherwise unlikely to be collected.

Bottles Stopped

The amount of ocean-bound plastic collected and recycled in our recycling communities converted into bottles. Conversion rate is 50 bottles per kg (the average weight of a 500mL bottle is ~20g)

Community Members

Individuals within a recycling community who collect plastic and deliver it to a collection point in exchange for collection benefits.

Recycling Communities

Community of plastic collectors living within 50 kilometres of ocean-bound waterways involved in plastic collection and its exchange at Plastic Bank collection points.


Alchemy is the blockchain platform that powers the Plastic Bank app. It enables fully traceable recycling processes, secures income for recycling community members and tailors impact reports for our stewards.


In 2019, Plastic Bank was proud to collaborate with ClimatePartner and begin a longterm partnership to support our oceans and coastal communities.

ClimatePartner – Better living conditions today and tomorrow: At ClimatePartner, we work every day to improve the living conditions of people, animals and plants around the world through climate protection.
Specifically, we develop and promote climate protection projects with our customers. Climate protection projects improve the local situation and create opportunities for people to improve their lives. Climate protection projects also preserve the habitat of animals and plants.

The main contribution we want to make is to protect the climate. So that future generations can shape their lives as freely as we do today. Because that will not be possible if the average temperature on Earth continues to rise. Let us tackle this goal together!
