PLASTIC

By 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish (by weight). We work with communities in Haiti, Indonesia and the Philippines to reclaim ocean bound plastic from the environment making the Impact Collective brands plastic neutral.

Featured Plastic Projects

rePurpose Waste Ventures

India

Waste Ventures India is a social enterprise in Hyderabad transforming India’s waste dumping into a waste management sector. By engaging existing networks of waste pickers and scrap dealers through technology and ethical business practices, WVI is redefining long-standing preconceptions around waste.

Plastic Bank

Haiti

32 collection branches across Haiti extract over 3.5 million kg of ocean-bound plastic, the equivalent of 126 million plastic bottles. The plastic credits provide a life-changing income increase for the collectors, encourages more collection, and prevents plastic from entering the ocean.
