Have a
triple impact

With your contribution, you fight plastic pollution, support Waste Workers and reduce carbon emissions at once!

Here’s how

we achieve a triple impact:

Circulate partners with waste management organizations to collect plastic waste from the environment, illegal dumpsites and unmanaged landfills, reducing the plastic pollution. We ensure a fair compensation and safe work environment for Waste Workers, supporting and uplifting a marginalized group from the bottom of the pyramid. Lastly, the circulate system leads to an increased availability of recycled materials in the market. By replacing virgin plastics, up to 70% of carbon emissions can be avoided.

Be part of our good cause!

Let’s balance your

Plastic Footprint!

For every kilogram plastic consumed, we ensure fair recovery and recycling of a kilogram of plastic waste.

Together with

our partners in the Global South.

Circulate partners with social enterprises in the Global South, supporting their push towards fair & sustainable waste management systems. All our partners must be certified under the upcoming Verra Plastic Standard and are periodically audited to monitor the social and environmental effectiveness of their operations. This way, the Global North can finally take responsibility for it’s waste streams and it’s history of decades of waste exports.

FAQ

Yes.

We’re here to balance the impact when using plastic is unavoidable.  

No.

To solve the plastic crisis, we need new alternative materials, new business models, and a working circular economy - all of which takes time to develop and more time to take effect. Until then, circulate boosts plastic recovery and recycling and takes a stand for safe and fair working conditions in the plastic sector. That’s a good start.

Plastic compensation has multiple impacts:

  • reduction of plastic pollution
  • higher availability of recyclates in the market, replacing virgin plastic and thereby saving up to 70% GHG emissions
  • improved infrastructure and processes for a circular economy
  • increased livelihood of waste workers
  • awareness and behavioral change of consumers

All our Partner Projects are or will be verified under the world’s first Plastic Standard, which will be published in Q1 2021. 

The Plastic Standard sets requirements for clean processes and fair working conditions for participating waste management organizations. Independent audits and precise tracking and reporting ensure the enforcement of the Plastic Standard, making the impact per Euro  measurable, traceable and transparent.

We don’t only care about plastic trash, we care for the future of our planet. With supporting development in the Global South, we can help to create a liveable future on our planet.

While recycling systems in the Global North are far from perfect, it’s in places like South East Asia where we can greatly improve infrastructure (often there is none!), preventing waste from entering the ocean, and uplifting marginalized groups of society - the Waste Workers from the informal sector.

The countries of the Global North have a long history of exporting their waste problem, applying an "out of sight - out of mind" mentality.

We believe it's high time for the people causing high plastic emissions to take responsibility and support the ones that have been bearing the consequences of their lifestyle for decades.

An increased income leads to increased education which leads to a reduced growth of population. That in turn reduces the global demand of resources and goods and lowers greenhouse gas emissions. That sounds great to us.
