Protecting our oceans is a serious task.
This is why we teamed up with The Plastic Flamingo (PLAF),
a leading provider of plastic waste management system and recycling process in the Philippines, with the double aim to find a solution for the issue of ocean plastic pollution while also having positive social impact.
By every contribution you make during your purchase at our eco-friendly webshop partners, you directly support the plastic collection of PLAF,
and we visualize the impact you personally make, in the Ocean Shapers platform.
1) PLASTIC COLLECTION
Ocean-bound plastic waste is gathered from the ocean & coastlines, as well as from 35 different waste collection points in Metro Manila area within 50 kilometres vicinity around the coastlines. These collection points include local schools, shops, and municipalities.
2) PLASTIC RECYCLING
Plastic waste is delivered to Plastic Flamingo's local recycling factory and segregated. Useful plastic is recycled and compressed into plastic planks, while the rest is shipped to other partners for further recycling.
3) SOCIAL IMPACT CREATION
Plastic planks are used for the construction of emergency shelters against earthquakes & floodings in the Philippines.
