PLASTIC COLLECTIVE

Transforming the global plastic waste economy 

“The economics of plastic recycling completely fails the most needy. Put simply, recycling plastic is uneconomical in the poorest  communities where most plastic waste ends up. Long haul transport destroys the economics ensuring the majority of waste does not get recycled. To solve the problem we must change the economics.”

– LOUISE HARDMAN, FOUNDER
