1Ocean-bound plastic

Plastic Bank operates under the global standard defined by Jenna Jambeck. 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.

2Community Members

3Equivalent 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)

4Recycling 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.

The Story Behind The Bottle

When you purchase a Plastic Bank Ocean Bottle you’re supporting the collection of plastic waste in some of the world’s most vulnerable coastal communities.

Our collectors in Haiti, the Philippines, Indonesia and Brazil exchange plastic waste for premiums used to purchase basic family necessities, such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance. The collected material is reborn as Social Plastic® which can be easily reintegrated into products and packaging as part of a closed-loop supply chain. Our Social Plastic® can be found in every Ocean Bottle sold.  

Our bonus program increases recovery rates and income for our collectors.
