Stopping Ocean Plastic Directly at the Source

Stopping Ocean Plastic Directly at the Source

Through our partnership with Greenspark we have committed to collecting 10 plastic bottles with every online purchase on Spritz Wellness. The plastic bottles are collected through a company set up to reduce plastic pollution called The Plastic Bank. Below is information on what The Plastic Bank stands for. How it has set up initiatives to stop plastic entering into our oceans and at the same time creating jobs for people living in poverty. 

One Garbage Truck Full of Plastic Enters the Oceans Every Minute

While plastic has improved and simplified our lives, we have also become used to it as a convenience. It’s easy to buy, cheap to use, and convenient to throw away. As we continue to create more plastic waste, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

You Can Stop Plastic Waste Before it Reaches Our Oceans

By partnering with Plastic Bank, you are helping to establish ethical plastic collection branches within 50 kilometers of oceans and waterways. Our collectors gather plastic waste directly from local beaches, riverbanks, neighbourhoods, and even households – so that we are able stop ocean plastic directly at the source.

Let’s Turn Plastic Waste into Worth

Together, we are revealing value in plastic waste and improving lives. Our collectors exchange plastic waste at local Plastic Bank branches for bonuses that help provide basic family necessities, such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, health insurance, digital connectivity, and clean drinking water. By offering safe, secure, and traceable sources of income, we’re empowering vulnerable communities with a path out of poverty.

Together For a Better World

With Plastic Bank, the world’s most progressive companies and individuals are stewarding the collection of ocean-bound plastic waste and empowering communities to thrive. The recycled plastic is reborn as Social Plastic™ feedstock and used in the production of products and packaging – thus helping create new life for old plastic.

We Can Empower a Regenerative Society

By collecting, recycling, and reprocessing ocean-bound plastic waste – and supporting collector communities along the way – we can reduce our need for virgin plastic while creating lasting environmental, social and economic impact.
