plastic bank partnership announcement busch systems

Busch Systems partners with Plastic Bank to help stop the equivalent of 2.2 million plastic bottles from entering the ocean!

Busch Systems containers are made with a minimum post-consumer-recycled content, and we offer one of the only 100% PCR content recycling and waste bins on the market, but now we’re taking it a step further. Busch Systems is proud to partner with Plastic Bank to help keep used plastics out of the world’s oceans!

One garbage truck full of plastic enters the ocean every minute, and at the rate we’re going now, it’s estimated that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

Plastic Bank helps stop plastic before it reaches our oceans by supporting Collection Branches located within 50 kilometers of ocean-bound waterways and coastlines. Their collection community members gather plastic waste directly from local beaches, riverbanks, neighbourhoods, and even households – so they are able to stop plastic at the source before it reaches the ocean.

Their members exchange plastic waste as currency for secure income and life-improving benefits including health, work and life insurance, digital connectivity, grocery vouchers, school supplies, fintech services, and more, helping to empower communities in vulnerable coastal areas. The collected material is recycled and processed into Social Plastic® feedstock for reuse in products and packaging. 

In 2023, Busch Systems will help stop the equivalent of 2.2 million plastic bottles from entering the ocean through our support of Plastic Bank’s important work.
