The goals of this waste reduction program is to recover and recycle ocean, ocean-bound, and land plastic waste. It does this by: incentivizing the formal and informal waste collectors and recycling agents of islands and remote coastal areas, including municipalities, schools, and volunteers; connecting corporate partners with industrial recycling supply chains to ensure reuse and upcycling of plastics recycled, in a fully circular and locally integrated economy; investing in regional recycling initiatives to ensure the increased recycling capacity of materials that would otherwise be disposed of improperly or end up in landfill; and engaging with collectors and communities about waste management and its impacts and teaching them how to mitigate future waste by raising awareness on waste management, collection, and recycling activities.
