PLASTIC - THE NEW CURRENCY
Buy Food with Plastic is an association based in Zürich, Switzerland.
Their vision is to sensitize people to a more conscious use of plastic. They give value to plastic and use it as a currency. In countries like Nicaragua, they are organizing events where people in the local communities can pay for a meal with plastic bottles. The team pays around one dollar for a meal, so your contribution makes a huge difference! They are able to reduce plastic waste and simultaneously help the population to afford healthy food. With the collected plastic they are currently constructing houses. Once they have enough resources, their goal will be to build wells in disadvantaged countries to entirely release the water supply from plastic bottles.
