A Recycled Belt for the Oceans.
When you buy a For Purpose Recycling product, you fund the collection of 10kgs of ocean-bound plastic. Locals turn the plastic waste into a sustainable livelihood, using a network of community waste banks.
MADE TO CLEAN
One belt purchased prevents 10 kgs of plastic from entering the oceans. Thats an equivalent of 50,000 plastic bags.
Funds raised by the sale of each belt will provide waste collection, recycling infrastructure, environmental education, income opportunities and other critical support to coastal communities in Indonesia that do not have access to basic waste services.LEARN MORE
We work with local communities and NGOs to create income opportunities for people living in coastal communities that help prevent plastic from entering the oceans.
Community members and informal waste workers can exchange the plastic waste for cash, healthcare, school fees and other essentials.LEARN MORE
HOW WE WORK
We have partnered with carefully-chosen local non-profit organisations to bring clean and safe recycling systems to coastal communities in Indonesia that do not have access to basic waste services. Our work doesn’t stop when the waste systems have being implemented. We remain committed to monitor, evaluate and maintain the programs to ensure they operate sustainably for years to come.
Our carefully-chosen local non-profit partners have deep connections with the communities, excellent reporting practices, and years of experience implementing waste, recycling and environmental conservation projects in their area.
Why does F.P.R work with local partners?
We believe that partnering with local organisations is the best way to create long-term sustainable impact. With years of waste management, recycling, environmental conservation experience and nuanced knowledge of the local regions they serve, our local partners are true experts in their field.
