OUR MISSION

WE’RE CLEANING UP
80 YEARS OF
PLASTIC WASTE.

We encourage the elimination of unnecessary plastic and enable responsible production and waste
management for any plastic that remains, so that it doesn't wind up in nature.

OUR STORY

IT HITS CLOSE TO HOME.

We started in the Philippines. But we represent all of the places hit hard by end-of-life plastic waste. We know first-hand its toll on nature, the climate, the economy, and our health. There’s no time to waste. It’s a global problem that needs a global solution.

WE’RE FUELED BY HOPE.

Drawing from the success of our Hope in a Bottle program, we launched PCX to take on the massive challenge of global plastic waste. Our vision was to adopt only the best practices of carbon credits and apply it to plastic, but with transparency and impact at the core. We became the first nonprofit to do so.

LET’S THINK
CIRCULAR.

The plastic ecosystem touches everyone. That’s why it’s crucial PCX works with businesses, local communities and the government. On one side, we created a platform for businesses to purchase credits and offset the plastic they can’t yet eliminate. On the other, we’re empowering communities with a livelihood based on plastic elimination.

WE’RE
MOBILIZING
A PLANET.

We’re building an ever-expanding network of partners who recover, process and recycle plastic waste. As we grow, we continuously seek out the latest environmentally sound solutions to plastic waste reduction, and find new ways to strengthen the circular economy.

OUR MISSION

WHAT WE
CARE MOST ABOUT.

PCX is working to clean up 80 years worth of plastic waste. We encourage the elimination of unnecessary plastic and enable responsible production and waste management for any plastic that remains, so that it doesn’t wind up in nature.

The oceans give us oxygen, regulate our climate, and provide food and income for billions.
Yet human activity has left them in a perilous state. By preventing plastic waste from
leaking into our ecosystems, we hope to restore our oceans and protect our planet.

We partner with companies committed to environmentally preferred waste management practices. By commissioning stringent audits on all of our partners’ operations, we do everything we can to promote the effective reduction and disposal of plastic waste.

 

For us, sustainability means social and economic development too. Our model provides investments in environmental protection, support for behavior change, and opportunities for women in the circular economy. Through our programs like Aling Tindera Waste-to-Cash, we do impactful work that not only provides additional income to communities but allows our partners to become champions of sustainability.

  

CHANGE IS
A TEAM SPORT.

We come from different backgrounds, including environmental research, management, and policy, united by a common vision of a plastic waste-free world.

We are building a movement of partners from local governments to global brands,
all working towards a common goal: No plastics in nature.
