A donation today helps to create a greener tomorrow

Plastic Bank Foundation (Canada) is committed to creating a greener world by advocating and lobbying to increase the use of non-virgin plastics. We are firm in our beliefs that there is a hidden value to plastic – much more than what meets the eye. That is why we are fighting the fight to take that hidden value and turn it into something meaningful and beneficial for the world. A donation to us will help to fund our efforts in taking this hidden value into the supply chain and reinventing how we treat plastic.
