It’s our mission to clean up the ocean and planet by ensuring that anyone can collect enough plastics to permanently ascend from poverty.
The Plastic Bank is a plastics return, repurposing, and 3D printing center strategically located in areas around the world with both an abundance of plastic waste & poverty.
Our self-sustaining business model empowers the poor to harvest plastics as a currency for various opportunities including education, training, necessities and 3D printing services.
We call the plastics harvested by the poor or removed from our oceans & waterways ‘social plastics’ and it is our goal to lead the movement towards the worldwide demand for the use of social plastics in everyday products. The higher the worldwide demand becomes, the higher the reward will be for harvesting social plastics.
