Plastic Free Planet
Plastic Free Planet is a nonprofit organization that fights against pollution of the oceans. Their mission is to remove, recycle and avoid plastic. There are over 150 employees in Southeast Asia and Africa who remove plastic waste out of the ocean with their hands. Later it is picked up by the recycling companies and taken to a larger collection point. There it is sorted again and in the end used for new products such as chairs etc.
„3 meals a day, sending children to school, electricity, a visit to the dentist - these are just a few examples of what our employees really want - and thanks to your help and our activities, they can now achieve it. All of our employees abroad are paid above average. In the countries where it is possible for us, the employees have social insurance.“
