Our Story

We’re cleaning up 80 years of plastic waste.

IT HITS CLOSE TO HOME.

We started in the Philippines. But we represent all of the places hit hard by end-of-life plastic waste. We know first-hand its toll on nature, the climate, the economy, and our health. There’s no time to waste. It’s a global problem that needs a global solution.

WE’RE FUELED BY HOPE.

Drawing from the success of our Hope in a Bottle program, we launched PCX to take on the massive challenge of global plastic waste. Our vision was to adopt only the best practices of carbon credits and apply it to plastic, but with transparency and impact at the core. We became the first nonprofit to do so.

LET’S THINK CIRCULAR.

The plastic ecosystem touches everyone. That’s why it’s crucial PCX works with businesses, local communities and the government. On one side, we created a platform for businesses to purchase credits and offset the plastic they can’t yet eliminate. On the other, we’re empowering communities with a livelihood based on plastic elimination.

WE’RE MOBILIZING A PLANET.

We’re building an ever-expanding network of partners who recover, process and recycle plastic waste. As we grow, we continuously seek out the latest environmentally sound solutions to plastic waste reduction, and find new ways to strengthen the circular economy.

WHAT WE CARE MOST ABOUT.

Purchasing offsets is not a license to pollute or maintain the status quo. If we want to succeed, we need to work together to hit UN Sustainable Development Goals along the way.

The oceans give us oxygen, regulate our climate, and provide food and income for billions. Yet human activity has left them in a perilous state. By preventing plastic waste from leaking into our ecosystems, we hope to restore our oceans and protect our planet.
