About us

OUR STORY

Next to every recyclable plastic bottle there is a plastic bag, shoe, food packaging or other non-recyclable plastic that is not being collected because it has no market value. Unlike the selective recycling market, TONTOTON’s allows companies to create a circular solution for all types of plastic waste.

Through a certified plastic credit system, we have created, in particularly polluted coastal areas, a community-based solution for the clean-up and disposal of all plastics, leaving nothing behind.

TONTOTON’s solution is designed to involve and empower the informal waste sector and local communities. Creating a new market for ‘orphan’ plastic, TONTOTON recycle, upcycle and co-process mismanaged plastic, supporting communities and environments.

OUR VISION

We believe in a WIN-WIN-WIN solution for ocean plastic pollution, one that includes diverse benefits and a blue circular economy benefitting all: the environment, the society, and businesses.

OUR MISSION

The TONTOTON program aims to rescue low-value plastic from the environment before it reaches oceans
by engaging companies to create a blue circular economy.
Through our program, we enable local communities, especially poor waste workers,
to achieve higher earnings, improve life quality, and improve access to education, services, and technology.

Our work follows the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN for The Agenda 2030.
