More from by HumanKind:

The average American generates 22 pounds of plastic waste every month1. For every $1, Plastic Bank prevents over 4 pounds of plastic waste from entering the ocean, while improving the lives of collector communities. Each month you’ll prevent 22 pounds of plastic from entering our environment. Plastic, neutral.

Whenever possible, we should reduce or eliminate the single-use plastic in our daily routines. This is always step #1. Plastic offsets allow anyone to achieve a net-neutral plastic footprint1 while we continue working towards a more sustainable future.

To offset your plastic footprint, we’ve partnered with Plastic Bank – a social enterprise committed to stopping ocean plastic while improving the lives of collectors in vulnerable coastal communities.

Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities and reprocesses the materials for reintroduction into the global manufacturing supply chain. Collectors receive a premium for the materials they collect which helps them provide basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance. Plastic Bank creates environmental, social and economic impact in Haiti, the Philippines, Indonesia, Brazil and Egypt.
