The Plastic Bank is turning plastic waste into a currency to help reduce global poverty. The exchange process for our ethically sourced recycled “Social Plastic®” improves the life of a disadvantaged person while cleaning our planet. The goal of The Plastic Bank is to lead the movement towards a worldwide demand for the use of Social Plastic® in everyday products. The Plastic Bank has created a system to prevent ocean bound plastic waste from being dumped into oceans, rivers and waterways by making it too valuable to throw away.
How we helped
Lush provided the required funding to open a new Plastic Bank Ramase Lajan location in Haiti. This new location will help provide an income for the local operator along with income and life improving opportunities for the local community. Thanks to Lush there will now be less plastic pollution entering our oceans from Haiti.
