POLLAST!C is a revolutionary range of packaging made from recycled Ocean bound Plastic pollution rescued from coastal communities throughout Southeast Asia.
POLLAST!C is made from Certified Ocean Bound Plastic - plastic pollution that meets the following criteria;
An estimated 8-12 million tonnes of plastic enters our oceans every year and this is expected to triple by 2040.Over 70% of that plastic enters oceans via land and over 80% of that comes from Asia. That's why we focus our collection efforts in Southeast Asian coastal communities.
By working closely and responsibly with communities in these areas, we can clean up the environment AND have positive social impact.
When we commit to purchasing the plastic pollution they collect, we provide a consistent source of income and help raise their standards of living.
Pollution and poverty are often inextricably linked – and waste management infrastructure is often non-existent in these communities.
Plastic rubbish is usually littered, burnt or buried (in piles for livestock and dogs to ferret in). If instead we can provide an economic incentive for people to collect it, we can stop it from staying in the environment.
Independent Life Cycle Analysis has shown POLLAST!C mailers to be the lowest carbon form of packaging currently commercially available.
They have a CO₂ footprint 75% less than that of a traditional plastic mailer and 30% less even than 100% recycled paper.
The process of making POLLAST!C packaging delivers on 13 of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
