Here’s what Social Recycling is all about
Our planet is drowning in plastic waste and the people who are most vulnerable to it are sinking into poverty. One transformative idea solves both problems.
Exchange plastic waste for value
We empower communities living in vulnerable coastal areas to collect ocean-bound plastic waste and exchange it as currency for income and life-improving benefits, including health, work and life insurance, digital connectivity, grocery vouchers, school supplies, fintech services, and more. The plastic is recycled and reintegrated into products and packaging by some of the world’s most progressive companies.
It’s a win for our communities, it’s a win for our partners, it’s a win for our planet, and it’s a win for humanity!

We know, it’s hard to commit before the first date.
