Created in January 2018 by a group of seven young international advocates, Plastic Punch (PP) aims at promoting a circular economy and environmental preservation, particularly marine conservation, to support sustainable development impacting future generations. PP’s objective is also to inspire behavioural change through citizen science and awareness raising towards sustainable waste management practices with an emphasis on reducing plastic pollution.
The NGO started its projects in Ghana, home to a rich flora and fauna, and more specifically marine turtles, a highly endangered species that come to its shores on an annual basis to lay their eggs. As evidenced during turtle monitoring sessions conducted by the PP team, the amount of waste on the beaches directly harms the turtles, which must nest amidst considerable amounts of plastic waste and can die by ingesting plastic floating in the water.
