Collaborate with Us
to Create a Lasting Impact
Impact programs enable businesses the opportunity to support ocean-bound plastic recycling efforts and take a leadership position in the regenerative society. Brands can either contribute a fixed amount towards a Plastic Bank collection offset, or they can become Certified Plastic Neutral by offsetting an equivalent amount of collected ocean-bound plastic as used in their products and/or packaging.
Take Action Today
Your contribution will directly support the collection of ocean-bound plastic, as well as helping to build and maintain our local collection ecosystems. Together, we are creating lasting environmental, social and economic impact. By supporting Plastic Bank’s impact programs, you can become a leader in the regenerative society.
Types of Impact programs
Certified Plastic Impact
Make the contribution that works best for you and stop a fixed amount of ocean-bound plastic with our Plastic Impact Program. Our Plastic Impact Program enables businesses to achieve their annual sustainability goals, create deeper purpose within their brands, and empower their consumers to make an impact upon every purchase of their product. Plastic Impact is also available for businesses that are not using plastic material in their products or packaging.
Certified Plastic Neutral
Contribute to the collection and recycling of an equivalent amount of plastic used in your products and their packaging on a yearly basis. By becoming Certified Plastic Neutral, businesses commit their products to a neutralized plastic footprint, so they can continue using plastic responsibly while stopping the equivalent amount from entering the world’s oceans.
