If we don’t take action now, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050
It is estimated that up to 10 million tonnes of plastic waste enters the ocean from coastal communities each year. Plastic bags, bottles and other plastic accumulate forming huge patches of waste. Waves of plastic waste are rolling on our beaches. In the ocean, plastic pollution impacts sea turtles, whales, seabirds, fish, coral reefs, and countless other species and habitats. Marine and bay areas are increasingly becoming less viable environments for humans and animals alike.

Social & Sustainable
Social Plastic® helps people living in poverty to build a better future for themselves and their families.
Plastic Bank creates social and environmental impact in areas with high levels of poverty and plastic pollution by turning plastic waste into currency. Their mission is to encourage people to recycle plastic through collection in exchange for money, goods or services needed in their community. ADVANSA is partnering with Plastic Bank to take action against plastic waste. Plastic collected by Plastic Bank (Social Plastic®) is cleaned and recycled before being used by ADVANSA as a valuable raw material in the manufacture of filling fibres.
