Every year we add 300 million ton of plastic waste to the enormous waste mountain and soup we already have. Less than 10% of this is re-used or recycled. To reduce incineration, landfilling and not to dump more plastic waste in our oceans, we have to re-use and recycle much; much more and much better than we do today.
Upp! creates recycling factories where plastics are gathered regionally and made into durable, recyclable products needed by the local community. With a goal to save 250 million kilos of plastic waste every year from incineration, landfills or oceans by 2025, Upp! supports companies, communities and governments to become plastic-waste-free.
