The Plastic Bank helps to prevent ocean plastic and reduces poverty around the world. They do this by turning waste into currency. Plastic Bank are globally recognised as one of the most important solutions to preventing ocean plastic. By enabling the exchange of plastic for money, items or Blockchain secured digital tokens, Plastic Bank reveal the value in plastic. This empowers recycling ecosystems around the world and stops the flow of plastic into our oceans. All while helping people living in poverty build better futures. We are incredibly proud to be the first surfboard manufacturer to partner with the Plastic Bank to create the world's first soft surfboard using post-consumer recycled plastic waste.
