Our goal is to accelerate impactful solutions to the plastics crisis by working collaboratively upstream.
Through key partnerships, we help accelerate solution-based projects or organisations by connecting them with resources they need, from funding to implementation. We work our way upstream from beaches to townships, with a special focus on solutions that create value from plastic waste thus intercepting plastic before it enters our waterways and environment. With EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) becoming a reality in SA we are on the hunt to make this shift smooth and beneficial for not only the environment but brands and retailers too.
