Indhold fra partner Hvad er dette?
Thanks to a growing number of companies supporting ReSea Project's cleanup mission, it only took the local cleanup teams in Indonesia six months of 2021 to stop more than half a million kilos of plastic waste from polluting oceans and rivers.
ReSea Project's cleanup ecosystem is set up in local communities near plastic polluted rivers or coastal areas.
Plastic pollution is on everyone's lips these days, and a growing number of companies are seeking ways to be part of tackling the issue. And rightfully so. The amount of plastic waste littering our oceans is still on the rise, and now more than ever we need immediate and concerned actions to stop plastic from destroying ecosystems, harming wildlife, nature, and society.
In the first six months of 2021, ReSea Project's local cleanup teams in Indonesia have recovered no less than 560,030 kg of plastic from heavily polluted rivers and coastal waters, stopping it from ending on the seabed and flowing into the open sea.
The collection data for the period from January to the end of June has been third-party validated by the global quality assurance company DNV, and all collection data is stored using blockchain technology.
The cleanup impact is powered by the increasing number of companies in Denmark and globally joining the movement as part of their CSR commitments to take part in tackling one of the most pressing environmental issues humanity and our one and only home is facing. learn more about the movement here.
