Our mission is - with help from a large network of local partners - to collect plastic from the oceans. Using recycled plastic limits virgin material from entering the world.
How we collect the plastic
The plastic waste is collected around Jakarta, Indonesia. The plastic waste is then recycled at a recycling facility in Jakarta, Indonesia to be used for new applications.
Story from a local fisherman
Fishermen in Indonesia are widely affected by the worsening plastic pollution in the oceans, as it is threatening their activities at sea and contributing to a declining fish stock. The fishing industry is in general affected, as more and more fishermen pull up nets filled with plastic garbage instead of fish. Listen to one of many stories, about how local fishermen’s livelihood is massively affected by the increasing plastic pollution in our oceans.
