As the world’s population continues to grow, so does the amount of waste created by humans. 

Every day we use a variety of products to fulfil our basic needs. The way these products are packaged allows for consumption of fresh items at any given time –– but often creates layers of wasteful and unnecessary plastic packaging.

Every minute, the equivalent of one garbage truck – 8 million tonnes –  is dumped into our oceans, endangering aquatic life, threatening our health and ecosystems. 

We have partnered up with Plastic Punch, a dynamic team who are dedicated to not only raise awareness on the dangers of plastic on the environment, but provide innovative solutions to combat the crisis.
