Ocean-bound plastic is defined as plastic that has not yet found its way into the ocean but is classified as "mismanaged waste". That is, plastic that is not being (formally) collected, is not likely to be collected, and is found within 50km of an ocean-bound waterway or coastal area.

Social Recycling in the Philippines

Plastic pollution and poverty are intertwined. Plastic Bank empowers communities to use plastic waste as currency for access to secure income and life-improving benefits. This incentivizes collection, helps to alleviate poverty, and gives new life to old plastic for reintegration into products and packaging. We call this social recycling, and you can be part of it!
