At Waicee we're proud to be a part of a global movement dedicated to collecting 7 billion ocean-bound plastic bottles by the end of 2025.
Did you know that a staggering 2 million kilograms of plastic enter our oceans each day? That's equivalent to a truckload of plastic every single minute. If we don't take action, by 2050, the plastic in our oceans will outweigh the fish that call these waters home.
Plastic is collected by locals from some of the worst affected coastal communities such as the Philippines, Brazil, Egypt, Ghana, India and Indonesia, who then exchange the plastic for money or receive digital credit to swap for tuition, tech goods, healthcare and micro-finance. This infrastructure is made possible with help from partners Plastic Bank, Plastics for Change and rePurpose who set up collection sites and ensure transactions to collectors are secure through traceable technology.
Through our unique partnership with Ocean Co, each Waicee bottle sold funds the removal of ½ kilo of ocean-bound plastic. This not only helps clean our oceans but also supports coastal communities affected by plastic pollution worldwide.
