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, and therefore no solution.
The Plastic credit system allows companies to end selective collection and prevent plastic leakage into the ocean.
For TONTOTON, a plastic credit represents the collection and treatment of one ton of non-recyclable ocean-bound plastic. TONTOTON provides corporations with a solution to take responsibility for the extent of their consumption by financially supporting clean-up activities of mismanaged plastic abandoned in the environment.
Plastic credits act as a viable investment structure to reduce a business’ negative impact according with the amount of plastic waste that would be produced; this can be achieved through our external project which addresses the most acute problem occurring in Cambodia and Vietnam – mishandling of post-consumer, non-recyclable plastics.
DRIVE PRIVATE SECTOR FUNDING TO FRONTLINE SOLUTIONS
Imagine an inflatable pool full of plastic balls representing our global plastic consumption yearly.
In that case, each ball is a different company that uses plastic.
Like the other businesses, your ball represents the plastic products and packaging that you produce each year.
In other terms, this is your plastic footprint.
TONTOTON helps companies to take responsibility of not only the recyclable plastic wastes, but more so, the orphan plastics that the current commodity market cannot recycle therefore becomes the biggest problem in the plastic waste management loop. While plastic credit can help balance the companies’ plastic footprint with the same amount of collected plastic waste in most polluted areas, it is also a tool for companies to do more and influence a market balance between recyclable and non-recyclable plastic wastes.
What does it mean?
‘Company A’ has added 300 tons of plastic products to the global pool this year.
TONTOTON, supported by the company,
will take out 300 tons (or more) of non-recyclable
ocean-bound plastic from the pool and take accountability of its plastic footprint.
When a company requests to collect plastic for recycling, a selective collection of the specific material required is carried out. Single-use plastic and these of poor quality that are not economical to recycle is not collected and remain in the environment, in remote villages, rivers, and oceans.
Through a certified Plastic Credits system, we help companies to move from a selective collection of only plastic for recycling to an extensive responsible collection of all types of plastic, Leaving nothing behind!
TONTOTON’s plastic credits are a key mechanism to propel corporate capital directly to our on-the-ground projects collecting ocean-bound plastic and creating next-life solutions.
