Clean Oceans

Yesterday, 

by midnight,

the world’s plastic factories had manufactured 876,000 tonnes of new plastic material, in a single day. That's the same weight as 2,500 jumbo jets, of new plastic, made every day...

Recycled Plastic

...But is this a problem?

Well, plastic itself is an amazing product. Without it our lives would be very different...

Health Care 

Personal Protective equipment (PPE) made from plastic has saved millions of lives both during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in daily medical life.

Packaging

Plastic packaging helps protect and preserve goods, while reducing weight in transportation, which saves fuel and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

Products

The durability of plastic products means it is resistant to corrosion, impact, UV rays and many other environmental factors and it doesn't have to be replaced as often as other materials.

What's the problem? 

Plastic Waste

Of the 320 million tonnes of plastic produced every year, 70% is discarded within the same year. Only 8% of this is ever recycled, meaning 203 million tonnes of plastic ends up in landfill, incineration or our oceans, every year.

This plastic waste cannot be recycled with today's technologies and processes.

 

And plastic waste is deadly...

  • There are as many as 51 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean. That's 51 trillion deadly hazards that marine animals need to avoid.

  • A recent study found that 75% of all fish in the Nile River contained microplastics 

  • Two-thirds of all seabirds species are affected by plastic pollution.  In a recent study, 98% of albatrosses had ingested plastic, and 40% of their chicks died as they had been fed plastic by their parents. 

The world must find a way to reduce its plastic waste, but...

 

Today, 

by midnight,

the world’s plastic factories will manufacture another 
876,000 tonnes of new plastic material, in a single day. The world is addicted to plastic.

So, 

what if there was an immediate solution to recycle all the plastic waste?

By processing over 20,000 metric tonnes a year of plastic, we are stopping this waste from entering our environment and oceans. There are also significant CO2e savings made from avoiding this plastic entering incineration plants.

But what if this recycled plastic can be used to clean our air?
