PlasticShore is a non for profit organization that strives to raise awareness about the impact of plastic debris, while providing incentives and funding for collection efforts.
PlasticShore’s core strategy is to recycle plastics debris to serve as an “eco-label certification” on product lines. This approach transforms plastic pollution into a valuable asset for companies and helps mobilize the corporate sector to sponsor collection strategies.
PlasticShore works with environmental organizations, regional districts and community groups to support cleanup efforts. PlasticShore facilitates the process of recycling the plastics debris into an industry grade feedstock for manufacturing. The umbrella group strategy allows for multiple organizations to use the social enterprise model as a revenue stream to fund related charitable activities. We also strive to prevent the human behavior that contributes to pollution by reinforcing the message that 80 % of marine debris starts on land as litter.
Companies who sponsor PlasticShore may integrate the recycled plastic debris into their products and may use the “eco-label certification” to gain a competitive advantage. Proceeds generated go towards supporting further collection strategies and community initiatives through partnered institutions. The organization is re-framing plastic debris from an environmental challenge into a valuable product attribute.
Our mission is to reduce plastic pollution in the marine environment while providing an ethical product that maximizes environmental benefit.
Our vision is to create a continual system for the elimination of plastic pollution in our rivers, lakes and oceans.
At the PlasticShore Project we know that progress towards plastic free shorelines and oceans requires consumer trust and confidence.
We provide transparent information and will not promote green washing.
The PlasticShore Project is dedicated to the principles of sustainability.
