Developing countries are the ones most affected by plastic waste, mainly due to a lack of education and underdeveloped recycling infrastructure. Plastiks wants to help change this through collaboration with recovery projects in these areas.
The recovery projects we are working with are vital in restoring what plastic pollution has damaged, and they need funding to increase their impact.
Plastiks intends to fight plastic pollution by supporting sustainable and reliable plastic recovery activities operating across the globe, with a strong focus on transparency, accountability and compliance. All plastic recovered through our projects will be used as a resource, and never end up in landfill.
The Plastiks platform is gathering environmental actors, especially in regions that lack infrastructure and local regulations, and has designed a resilient methodology to mitigate this lack of standards.

Of the population
have microplastics in their blood
8 million tons of plastic enters our oceans annually. 700 species are affected by plastics, 1 credit card worth of microplastics is consumed every week by each adult, 80% of the population has microplastics in their blood.
It’s important to note where the vast majority of the world’s plastic pollution is coming from right now. 90% of all plastic waste entering the oceans through rivers, comes from just ten rivers in Asia and Africa.
Emerging countries industrialized at an impressive pace in the last few decades, transforming the lives of billions of people. This development was so fast, that the garbage disposal infrastructure couldn’t keep up with collecting and recycling all the new waste.
If organizations and individuals in western countries want to help address this issue, investing in infrastructure in developing countries is just as important as fighting plastic pollution at home with campaigns and redesigning products to minimize unnecessary plastic production.
If we do not address plastic pollution from a global perspective, we will not solve it.
Imagine a world where every bit of plastic has a first name and a last name. Imagine a world where we would know for sure how much plastic we are actually producing and recovering from the environment.
There is a lot of plastic data in the world, about production, recovery and where plastic ends up. But do we really know? Since plastic is not really being tracked or verified, it is impossible to know what plastic is being accounted for.
Introducing Plastiks, the ecosystem where everybody can take verifiable action to support recovery projects committed to fight plastic pollution, and reward transparency in the plastic economy.
