WHAT WE DO

Problem

8 million tons of plastic waste leak into the sea from land every year. That’s about 15 plastic shopping bags for every meter on coastline on earth. Across our ocean plastic trash flows into circulation. Dispursed almost everywhere but concentrating in huge patches in midst of global currents. Breaking down into smaller pieces, ingested by species across the marine world and sinking to the bottom of the sea. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.

Solution

Implementation of a new, modificated or existing technolgy on the coast of Northern Portugal to clean the Atlantic from floating plastic trash.

What else can I do?

Anyone can make plastic anywhere in the world and sell anywhere else in the world. In order to resolve the plastic packaging problem we need to effectively rethink the entire system. From one which is linear by take – make – dispose to on by recovered and fed back to economy as a valuable plastic material. The ultimate goal of the new plastic economy is to design an economy where plastic never becomes waste. And to do that we need every player in the chain to change the way they do things.

REDUCE
Choose to buy fewer things in a package in non-recyclable plastic

REUSE
Think reusable! A lot of plastics can be used more than once.

RECYCLE
Use the recycling programmes in your city. But a lot of recyclable stuff gets thrown away. Stuff like cloth and shoes full of plastic fibers. So why not donate them?

RETHINK
If you build or make things ask if there is another way to do it without using disposable plastics

REPAIR
If you own something plastic and it breaks try to repair it rather than throw it away

REFUSE
Just say no to disposable plastics like straws, forks and plastic bags
