Plastic Bank® & Sothys.

In each of our innovations, we pursue the idea of responsible beauty that respects the skin and the environment.
Beyond creating the most eco-designed packaging possible, Sothys is committed to an approach against plastic pollution and poverty by allowing its consumers to become actors through responsible and useful purchases.

1 KG OF PLASTIC USED, 1 KG OF COLLECTED PLASTIC.
Sothys Organics® range is now Certified Plastic Neutral by Plastic Bank. This means, for every kilo of plastic used in Sothys product packaging, Plastic Bank collects and recycles the equivalent amount of ocean-bound plastic. Plastic Bank collectors receive bonuses for the material they collect which helps them provide basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance.

PLASTIC BANK, FIGHTING OCEAN PLASTIC.
Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in vulnerable coastal communities, and reprocesses the materials for reintroduction into the global supply chain. It currently operates in Brazil, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Egypt.

A few figures.

* The average person generates 84 kg of plastic waste per year
* Every minute 1 garbage truck of plastic is dumped into our oceans
* 8 million tons of plastic is washed into the ocean each year
* If we continue like this, in less than 30 years there will be more plastic than fish
* 80% of this plastic waste comes from impoverished coastal communities.

The Plastic Bank® solution.

How to give value to this plastic? How can we help to produce it better?
* To build ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities in impoverished countries to:
Stop ocean plastic
* While improving the lives of those who help collect it

Revolutionizing recycling ecosystem.
* Building of ethical recycling centers directly in vulnerable coastal communities.
* And reprocessing materials to reintroduce them into the global supply chain

Give value to ocean-bound plastic by improving the lives of local collectors.
