Your plastic waste strategy needs action.

Any business's plastic waste strategy is incomplete without immediate action. Commitments to reduce plastic use or improve recyclability of your packaging are great. But with plastic waste on the rise, the planet can't wait, and consumers expect action now.

Fight plastic waste, account for plastic use, and be a more sustainable brand by funding Verified Plastic Recovery. Action today has an immediate and transformative effect on preventing plastic pollution.

Not only will you protect fragile ecosystems and empower frontline waste workers around the world, but investing in infrastructure leads to long-term reductions in ocean-bound and nature-bound plastic.

How it works.

Select your impact portfolio

Explore how much plastic to recover and which of rePurpose Global impact projects matches your brand's action.

Collect, recover and verify plastic waste

Projects are unique in the way they fix local waste value chains, but all collect and verify plastic that would have ended up in nature on your behalf.

Data is tracked, traced, and reported

You receive verified data to confirm the plastic recovery - projects and data are audited by independent third parties twice per year.

Communicate your verified impact

Use your impact in marketing, communications, and ESG reporting to make credible and trusted claims about your action.

Fight plastic waste, engage conscious consumers.

Plastic waste is the #1 environmental concern for consumers today. Far-off future commitments are not enough. Achieve immediate results by intercepting waste and supporting the growth of urgently needed plastic recovery infrastructure.

We cannot wait for a panacea.

Reduction is vital...

There is no silver bullet solution to solve the plastic waste crisis. Brands must adopt a multi-faceted roadmap that incorporates ambitious targets to reduce the usage of unrecyclable and virgin plastic materials.

... but recovery and recycling is also needed.

Every 60 seconds, over 1 million pounds of plastic waste will be produced. The lack of effective waste management infrastructure to collect and ethically process this waste negatively affects tens of millions of communities worldwide.
