Spending time with your family and friends, enjoy great food, sightseeing, drinking a good glass of wine, time to escape from your daily work. Well-deserved indeed! But did you know that one garbage truck full of plastic enters the ocean every minute? Help to stop plastic waste entering the oceans by disposing it in a proper way. Maybe you can spend some time of your deserved holiday to collect plastic waste yourself.
Matrix Fine Chemicals is leading by example to stop ocean plastic. We try to make a small impact by supporting the Plastic Bank project in two ways:
The Plastic Bank collection community members gather plastic waste directly from local beaches, riverbanks, neighbourhoods, and even households – so that they are able stop ocean plastic directly at the source. The members exchange plastic waste at local collection branches for secure income and life-improving benefits that include access to health, work and life insurance, social assistance, digital connectivity and banking services. By offering safe and traceable sources of income, Plastic Bank is empowering vulnerable communities with a path out of poverty.
