Creating Impact – Changing Realities

ONE TON AT A TIME

Next to every plastic bottle are non-recyclable plastic wastes. In countries where the plastic recycling market is active, only high-value plastic waste e.g., PET is being collected and recycled, while the low-value is easily discarded. Selective collection of plastic waste leaves a huge amount of plastic pollution unanswered. Aside from prevention, the big challenge is to develop an economical and sustainable solution for the orphan plastic treatment.

TONTOTON is a certified plastic credit program
that creates, in particularly polluted coastal areas, a community-based solution for the collection and treatment of post-consumer, non-recyclable plastic waste before they reach the world’s oceans.

TONTOTON’s waste management system brings together the coastal and island communities, the government, international organizations, NGOs, heavy industry, and private businesses to create a new market for the non-recyclable plastic waste and return them to the circular economy.

Enabling this is the plastic credit, a financially-viable solution that allows committed corporations to do more in mitigating plastic problems, to fund high-impact, community-based clean-up projects particularly focused on non-recyclable plastic wastes that are currently not part of the recycling system.

By selecting the eco-friendly solution of co-processing in cement plants, the system is able to convert huge quantities of orphan plastics into Alternative Fuel and Raw Materials (AFRM) resulting to zero waste and eventually reducing the carbon emissions in cement production.

A four-pillar approach guides the solution and makes this intervention scalable and its impact sustainable.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

WITH GREAT POWER, COMES GREAT SUSTAINABILITY

Evidence points towards a growing consumer market using their spending power to effect change.

There is mounting pressure on companies to be more ethical, and socially and environmentally responsible. In response, businesses are exploring ways be more accountable not only to their shareholders and stakeholders, but also the environment and the communities around them.

Legitimize your Company’s CSR Programme by being part of a solution that reduces your plastic footprint

  • Become more sustainable by reducing or neutralizing your Corporate Plastic Footprint. The TONTOTON solution allows local and international businesses to take responsibility for the plastic they produce by offsetting it with TONTOTON.
  • Any plastic product your company produces that is offset by TONTOTON can bear a ‘Plastic Neutralized’ symbol, indicating your corporation’s participation in the global solution to marine litter.
  • Credibility is key. Corporations participating in the TONTOTON plastic neutralizing program receive certificates to verify the quantity of waste collected, transported, received and converted into AFR, allowing quantifiable and reliable reporting to all stakeholders of your business. Wouldn’t it be good to acknowledge how many tons of orphan plastic your company prevented from becoming marine litter?
  • TONTOTON is a circular solution for plastic and textile waste, with an emphasis on low-value plastic waste that constitutes the majority of litter leakage from waterways into our oceans.

Leave Nothing behind

Impact and Responsible Packaging from the sourcing stage.

How do you make sure you’re leaving a footprint that is smaller than what it would have been the day before?

The Problem
A global selective collection of recycled post-consumer plastic
  • The recycling industry and corporate entities promote a selective collection of recyclable post-consumer plastic waste.
  • This approach leaves a significant amount of mismanaged, non-recyclable plastic uncollected, which pollutes the environment and affects biodiversity.

The Solution

Empower impact, Choose Responsibility.

An inclusive collection of recyclable and non-recyclable plastic.

  • Leave nothing and no one behind!
  • The ONE+ONE initiative combines post-consumer recycled plastic with collecting and treating non-recyclable plastic.
  • Companies can increase their impact and manage their plastic footprint from the material sourcing stage.
  • One+One allows responsible impact towards the sources of your raw materials and communities.
How does it works?

A certified plastic collection system for non-recyclable plastic

  • Plastic credits provide financial support for the collection and treatment of mismanaged post-consumer non-recyclable plastic.
  • It is certified by Ocean-Boand Plastic protocol and audited by 3rd party control body (Control Union)
  • The funds allow the building of community collection networks and infrastructure to treat non-recyclable plastic.
  • The program creates new jobs for disadvantaged people, awareness campaigns, and empowers communities through cleaner villages and sustainable income.

What can we do with non-recyclable plastic?

TONTOTON’s Material Recovery Facility

  • At our Material Recovery Facility (MRF), plastic waste is sorted into recyclable and non-recyclable materials.
  • Recycled material is sent to recyclers and brads, while non-recyclable is processed in-house.
  • We create plastic boards and building materials that are sent back to struggling communities to fix their homes.

Social and Envorimnetal impact

Environmental

  • 2800 tons of unmanaged non-recyclable plastic have been removed from the coastal environment so far.
  • over 430 segregation units set up in households and businesses, stopping plastic leakage to the natural environment and oceans.
Social
  • 450 community members joined as waste pickers to clean their villages.
  • 400 new jobs were created.
  • leverage income over one year was $14.25 USD daily compared to $2.8 USD daily in the same communities.
  • 57% of the waste pickers are women
  • Awareness campaign made in 14 villages and 3 schools.
