In a world grappling with an alarming plastic pollution crisis, our organization has taken a significant step towards creating a positive change. We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Plastic Bank, a remarkable charity that has been at the forefront of recycling plastic collected from beaches and oceans. Joining forces with Plastic Bank marks a transformative chapter in our Skinsider mission to combat plastic pollution and protect our precious marine ecosystems.
The Plastic Bank Revolution
Plastic Bank, founded in 2013, is a pioneering organization that addresses the dual challenges of plastic waste and poverty. They operate on a simple yet impactful model: incentivizing individuals in developing countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and Haiti to collect plastic waste from their communities and exchange it for valuable resources, including money, goods, and services. By providing a tangible reward for plastic waste, Plastic Bank empowers local communities to actively participate in ocean and beach cleanup efforts.
Notably, Plastic Bank recognizes the intrinsic value of plastic waste by transforming it into a currency called "Social Plastic®." This innovative approach creates an economic system that rewards individuals for their environmental stewardship while simultaneously reducing poverty. The collected plastic is then carefully sorted, recycled, and transformed into new products, ensuring that it doesn't end up in our oceans or landfills.
