The Plastic Bank, an organization that promotes the “social plastic” concept, turns plastic litter into a form of currency for impoverished communities. Those without work or in need of supplemental income would be responsible in harvesting plastic waste. The plastic trash will then be deposited at a designated recycling plant, which could be exchanged for things such as household goods and tools.
“Social plastic” will help reduce waste around the world.
