PROJECTS WE SUPPORT
Bioré skincare is supporting a dual project approach. First, we offset our carbon emissions through a Gold Standard solar project in India. Second, we support the collection of 10kg of ocean plastic for each compensated ton of CO2 through Plastic Bank. The combination allows for carbon neutrality and ocean protection at the same time.
Supporting Plastic Bank
Stopping ocean plastic while improving the lives of those who are most affected - this is the approach taken by the Plastic Bank. In Haiti, Indonesia, Brazil and the Philippines, people collect plastic waste. At local collection points, they can exchange it for money, food, drinking water or even school fees. This empowers vulnerable communities with a path out of poverty. The project makes sure that less plastic ends up in the sea. Instead, it is recycled and turned into so-called Social Plastic, which serves as raw material for new products such as packaging.
This project aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals
The fine print: it does not contain chocolate chips, you cannot eat it, and there is no fresh out of the oven smell.
