We collect plastic waste to fight marine plastic pollution
The Plastic Flamingo, aka The Plaf, is a French social enterprise with a pilot project in the Philippines since August 2018.
We are developing a replicable solution to fight marine plastic pollution in emerging countries, especially in Asia.
We chose to start in the Philippines, one of the top countries in the world with mismanaged plastic waste.
Along with China, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam they account for 60% of marine plastic pollution.
At The Plaf, we catch the waste in our collection network before it has a chance to travel into the Ocean.
Our collection network in and around Metro Manila is growing fast: we have already on boarded more than 30 schools, companies, stores, municipalities, etc.
