Home | News | Kick-off: Introducing more than 20 pilot projects for a Circular Economy for Plastics

How to stop plastics from finding their way into the ocean? ’Rethinking Plastics’ works on solutions together with seven countries and a lot of experienced partners in East and South East Asia.

Part of these efforts are pilot projects, which test new approaches and upscale best practices to prevent marine plastic waste and are implemented by non-profit organisations. Beginning of March, ‘Rethinking Plastics’ announced the 23 selected pilot projects in China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam which are supported with a total budget of around 2.7 million Euro. They cover approaches for the management of plastic waste, sustainable consumption and production of plastic as well as the reduction of litter from sea-based sources, such as ships and fishing vessels.
