David Katz’s firm has ingeniously made plastic waste a currency for the reduction of global poverty. Collectors receive an above market rate for waste plastic. Brands then purchase their ethically sourced recycled ‘Social Plastic’ for use in their manufacturing. Almost one million people have already asked for brands to use Social Plastic. This genius compassionate solution alleviates the double problem of waste plastic and global poverty in one hit. Watch this bank grow and grow.
