Venture: rePurpose Global is a global movement of conscious consumers and businesses going Plastic Neutral. As the world's first plastic credit platform, rePurpose Global makes environmental action delightfully simple for companies of all sizes by removing and recycling as much ocean-bound plastic waste as they produce, while simultaneously embedding sustainability into their product experience to reach and retain purposeful consumers. They accomplish this through their Global Impact Network of vetted waste recovery projects and circular innovations across six countries and three continents, where they deploy crucially needed finance to scale up environmental impact.
