POLLAST!CTM is a truly social solution to plastic pollution because the collection process gives employment to people in ‘frontline communities’ and improves the lives of the people and families that collect it. We are able to track where the plastic is collected and by whom so it’s completely traceable and the impact measurable. By cleaning up these environments, we also make them more pleasant and hygienic places to live. In these coastal communities, the ocean is often their lifeblood, so by helping to keep plastic out of it, we are contributing to a more sustainable future for them in that way too.
The production of POLLAST!CTM makes a positive contribution towards 13 of the 17 United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. POLLAST!CTM Mailers and poly bags are carbon neutral as we offset their carbon footprint by 100%.
