This article is about POLLAST!C™ – the world’s first 100% Ocean Bound Plastic courier mailers and poly bags, packed with impact.
Packaging made 100% from recycled plastic is almost unheard of, let alone made from plastic pollution collected from beaches and waterways in South East Asia. Until now. Meet POLLAST!C™ – the world's first 100% Ocean Bound Plastic courier mailers and poly bags packed with impact.
From the team that created the original 'Real Dirt Bag' home compostable courier mailers in 2018, New Zealand-based Better Packaging Co. brings you a world first in sustainable eCommerce packaging; POLLAST!C™ - packed with impact.
Around 80% of the plastic in the ocean has entered through rivers and coastlines, with some of the poorest communities in the world usually the most polluted. But imagine if your packaging actually cleaned up the environment and helped break the cycle of poverty and plastic pollution.
Working with coastal communities in some of the world's most polluted environments, BPCo. collects Ocean Bound Plastic pollution before it enters the ocean and then recycles it into packaging.
Their collectors come from the same communities and are paid well and incentivized to trade the plastic pollution they collect for rewards with long-term benefits, like food, education, and clean energy. By treating pollution as a valuable resource, they turn a negative into a positive and reward people for cleaning up their own environment.
Technology plays a significant role in the process and enables BPCo. to track exactly where the pollution is collected from and who by.
By making recyclable packaging from plastic pollution, POLLAST!C™ brings this 'lost' plastic back into the loop. Designing out the waste and our reliance on virgin plastic, BPCo. is working towards a circular economy.
In fact, the production of POLLAST!C™ makes a positive impact towards an incredible 14 of the United Nations' 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It's completely traceable and the impact measurable.
Imagine if your packaging actually cleaned up the environment and helped break the cycle of poverty and plastic pollution.
