What are Plastic Credits? An Introduction

A plastic credit is a transferable certificate representing the collection of a specified weight (e.g. one kilogram, one metric ton) of plastic waste recovered or recycled that would otherwise have ended up in the natural environment.

Plastic credits can be purchased by organizations and other end users to take action on their ‘plastic footprint.’ and this makes them a powerful tool to provide finance to fix the growing problem of global plastic pollution.
