The plastic bank
By revealing the value in waste plastic, The Plastic Bank, through Social Plastic, makes plastic waste a currency that can be exchanged to help lift people out of poverty by providing income and additional life-improving items and services.
Their mission is to remove plastic waste from the land, oceans and waterways while helping people ascend from poverty and transition into entrepreneurship.
Their goal is to lead the movement towards worldwide demand for the use of Social Plastic in everyday products. The higher the worldwide demand becomes, the higher the reward will be for harvesting Social Plastic.
