Beer for Good: Preventing Ocean Plastic & Alleviating Poverty - EVENT POSTPONED
EVENT POSTPONED - Date TBD
Join us for an evening with Plastic Bank, our non-profit partner that is globally recognized as one of the most important solutions to stop ocean plastic. Since its founding in 2013, Plastic Bank has recovered and recycled over 6.25 Million KG (13,000,000 lbs) of ocean bound plastic and improved the lives of over 4200 families living in poverty.
How do they do it, and how can you help?
Come to our Balboa Park tap room from 6-8pm on April 14th to find out!
The Plastic Bank team will share about the important work they are doing, and there will be an opportunity to ask them questions as well.
We are really excited about this event and look forward to seeing you!
More about our partnership with Plastic Bank:
Through our initiative with Plastic Bank, "Pounds for Pints", every pint of Murklands Pale Ale produced for Pure Project's tap rooms prevents 2 pounds of ocean-bound plastic. For 2020, Pure Project has committed to preventing over 67,000 pounds of ocean-bound plastic and fighting the root cause of plastic pollution by alleviating poverty.
About Plastic Bank:
Plastic Bank's mission is to stop ocean plastic by gathering a billion people together to monetize waste and improve lives.
Plastic Bank makes plastic and waste into a currency turning off the tap to fight ocean plastic and global poverty. Plastic Bank creates recycling ecosystems that ignite a Social Plastic® Revolution, uniting & enrolling humanity for local action that creates global impact.
Plastic Bank branches act as convenience stores for the ultra poor, where everything can be purchased using plastic as money. Members can save the value and safely cash out when needed redeeming it for necessities such as cash, food, cooking fuel, and solar powered cell phone charging etc. Their members can even unlock access to health insurance, education, career training and work placement programs for a life beyond recycling.
Plastic Bank’s recycling incentive programs are distributed and authenticated through the Plastic Bank app, which uses blockchain technology to provide the safest and most trusted means to deliver a globally scalable social impact. All plastic collected through the Social Plastic® ecosystem is sorted, recycled, and sold to companies for their manufacturing instead of using new plastics.
Plastic Bank operates in Haiti, the Philippines, Indonesia and Brazil and has recycled over 13 million pounds of ocean-bound plastic. With over 1 million pounds collected monthly as of September 2019 and upcoming expansions throughout Africa, Latin America and Asia, Plastic Bank is exponentially increasing the amount of ocean-bound plastic collected and the people impacted.
