Delivery of first credits from our Plastic Credits pilot project

Entreamigos delivered the first Credits from the PREVENT pilot project on Plastic Credits to waste collectors in Mexico. The Credits stand for fair remuneration of the collectors which pays them for the environmental service that they are doing

 

By implementing the Circular Credit Mechanism, the project builds an inclusive network of community collection and recycling to finance environmental services of individuals, organisations and landfill collectors. Thanks to the efforts of the network of recyclers, approximately 107 tons of plastic were rescued from the ecosystems and 14 localities in the region were impacted. In January, the Mexican NGO Entreamigos handed over the first Circular Credits that were generated by the pilot project.

The project is being implemented by Entreamigos, BVRio and cirplus and is part of the PREVENT pilot project “Plastic Credits for inclusive and transparent circularity”.
