We are drowning in an ocean of plastic.
Statistics are damning. By 2015, 8.3 billion metric tonnes of plastic had been produced. Two-thirds of it remains languishing on earth. At least 2 billion people globally do not have their rubbish collected. Heck, microplastic has reached the depths of the Mariana Trench.
But, what if for every transaction involving plastic, you could offset its impact by recycling the equivalent of plastic you consume? That’s exactly what Peter Wang Hjemdahl, Svanika Balasubramanian, and Aditya Siroya, the three co-founders of rePurpose,a social enterprisethat helps you offset your plastic footprint, intend to do.
