Monetization of Plastic Waste
Monetization Plastic waste and to incentivise people from all over the world to pick up plastic!
Around 8-12 million tons of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, and if it continues there will be 1 ton of plastic to every 3 tons of fish in the ocean by 2025.
We had to do something..
How did it all start?
The idea started when I was volunteering in Cambodia in 2017 when i saw vast amounts of plastic waste everywhere i went. Got me thinking how do we incentivize people to collect and recycle plastic waste? I thought why not monetize the waste, people need more streams of income so if we create value behind it maybe the problem can be solved.
The project itself started earlier this year when i was doing a Blockchain course at CBS where we had to apply blockchain to a sustainable solution, naturally, I recalled my time in Cambodia and thought why not explore it more by monetizing plastic waste through blockchain.
We can’t deny that Covid-19 pandemic has not had an effect on us. The challenges has pushed us backwards and we can now use all the help we can get!
We are still researching and trying to determine if people want to pick up plastic waste for a monetary incentive, or if there are better solutions.
We want to do so much more..
Where is the project now?
We got most of our research and business plan out of the way, and focusing on an MVP to test our potential product to determine product market fit.
We have been in contact with a potential partner in Pakistan to set up an MVP there and looking to make contact with some partners in Copenhagen.
Ambitions is key...
What is the future vision of the project?
The future vision will be to have a world rid of plastic waste by creating a new secondary plastic eco-system where key players can buy/sell plastic waste whilst incentivising plastic waste pick up.
