Building on our success in Amsterdam, the Plastic Whale Foundation aims to have a wider positive impact through local partnerships. We recently began working with our first local partner in the developing world. Sweepsmart is a sustainable waste management enterprise based in Bangalore, India that collects and recycles plastic waste to create local jobs with decent pay & conditions, and reduce the amount of plastic on landfill sites, one of our planet’s main sources of plastic soup. We’re confident this will be the first of many wonderful collaborations.
We donate 10% of all revenue of Plastic Whale Circular Furniture to the Plastic Whale Foundation’s efforts, which means you know that when you purchase Plastic Whale Circular Furniture you’re also helping take on this global challenge where we can have most impact: in the world’s major plastic soup hot spots.
Our mission is to involve as many people as possible to reach our goal for plastic-free waters. We’ve learned that awareness and contribution to the solution of the Plastic soup starts with our children. With the Plastic Whale Foundation we involve school kids in our education program.
We have developed a special school program; of course the kids go plastic fishing! Each year, moreover, the foundation organises free public events where everybody can join us to realise our goal for plastic-free waters. Your donation to the Foundation will make this all possible. The Plastic Whale Foundation has the ANBI status so donations are tax deductible.
