Who are Verdn?

Using their unrivalled experience, they have created a service that empowers consumers and companies to have a positive impact by letting them support valuable sustainable causes like ocean plastic clean-ups, mangrove tree planting and coral restoration. And this impact does not stop there. The projects that Verdn partner with also help to empower disadvantaged local communities across Africa and Southeast Asia by providing a crucial income to so they can provide for their families.

Ocean-bound plastic recovery 

Every year and estimated 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in our ocean, a figure that by 2050 could mean that there will be more plastic than fish in our ocean by weight. By collecting this plastic before it is lost at sea, it can instead be recycled, upcycled, or used for energy. 

Verdn partner with Empower who create innovative solutions to the plastic waste problem by giving plastic a value – enabling collectors, recyclers, brands, and consumers to make a real impact on the environment. 

Empower are helping to clean up the world while fighting poverty by providing a crucial income to local waste pickers living in disadvantaged communities. Together with NGOs and charities, they set up collection points that issue financial rewards in exchange for plastic deposits. This plastic is then digitally registered so that it can be traced back up the supply chain. 

It may seem like a drop in the ocean, but your ongoing support today is helping to shape a cleaner tomorrow.
