Cleanup initiatives are one of the four strategic pillars underpinning the mission of the Alliance to End Plastic Waste, as these specific measures raise awareness and bring people together. The Alliance to End Plastic Waste – a nonprofit NGO that works with both governments and nongovernmental organizations in the areas of environmental and economic development, as well as other movements from around the world – works to promote solutions that effectively combat environmental pollution caused by plastic waste. Through a variety of programs and partnerships, the Alliance focuses on four key areas: Infrastructure, Innovation, Education & Engagement, and Clean Up.
Storopack already has experience of cleanup initiatives: the company has been supporting the international charity Big Blue Ocean Cleanup since 2018 and is the exclusive sponsor of the organization’s coastal cleaning program. For example, the company’s employees voluntarily take part in beach cleaning initiatives in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and Benelux, removing microplastics and small plastic particles from beaches.
