No Poverty Clean Water and Sanitation
Why a hero of the seas?
Around 10 million tons of plastic waste flood the world's oceans every year. More than 663 animal species are directly affected by the waste catastrophe. Every year, about one million seabirds and one hundred thousand marine mammals die from garbage
How and where?
Give plastic waste value by making plastic exchangeable for cash and non-cash benefits. This will set recycling ecosystems in motion worldwide and prevent plastic from finding its way into our seas.
At the same time, there are people in poverty with an income opportunity who have prospects for the future. The collectors can exchange the found plastic for money, goods or services and thus improve their standard of living, feed their children and send them to school.
Especially in Indonesia the problem is extreme and therefore the perfect place to do something about the problem.
Plastic Bank wants to stop the garbage of the oceans by plastic. To this end, one billion people are to be motivated to turn waste into money and at the same time improve their quality of life.
Support these SDGs
The Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice. The 17 Goals are all interconnected, and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve them all by 2030.
