Plastic Bank’s Partnership with Nutrabolt

Plastic Bank collaborates with Nutrabolt to stop ocean plastic while improving lives

To achieve the sustainability goal of plastic neutrality, Nutrabolt’s Plastic Bank partnership will support the collection of 1,250,000 kilograms of ocean-bound plastic in 2022 – equal to nearly 63 million plastic bottles. Ocean-bound plastic will be collected in targeted locations around the world with significant plastic waste, and then transformed into reusable plastic material for new products.

Grow and Give Back

Nutrabolt is proud to continue to deliver on its longstanding mantra to Grow and Give Back by working with Plastic Bank. It’s one of many steps in the company’s sustainability strategy, and commitment to become an environmental role model in the active health and wellness space.
