The creation journey of our Changemaker bracelets starts with the collection of community members who gather plastic waste directly from local beaches, riverbanks, neighbourhoods, and even households.
The materials are exchanged at local collection branches for secure income and life-improving benefits – these include access to health, work and life insurance, digital connectivity, and social and banking services.
The collected plastic is reborn as Social Plastic® feedstock and used in the production of the beads in your bracelet.
At Plastic Bank, we're not just recycling—we're transforming plastic waste into opportunities for a better life. We turn ocean-bound plastic into a currency that helps communities access life-improving benefits. When communities gather plastic, they can exchange it for extra cash or essentials like health, work and life insurance, digital connectivity, grocery vouchers, school supplies, fintech services, and more
