By going Plastic Negative with rePurpose Global, LINNÉ is dedicated to funding the removal and recycling of TWICE as much plastic waste from nature as we use in our packaging. Under our Plastic Negative Certification, all of our products will carry a negative plastic footprint.
Through our partnership with rePurpose, we are supporting EcoWorks in Bogota, Colombia to employ and empower marginalized waste workers to ethically reclaim and dispose of low-value plastic waste. This is plastic that would otherwise be landfilled, burned, or flushed into waterways and oceans.
Your LINNÉ purchase is helping rePurpose and its waste management partners to add crucial income streams for informal waste workers and their families. Through our Plastic Negative contributions, rePurpose pays ethical wages to waste workers for collecting hard-to-recycle, low-value plastic waste items thereby substantially increasing their income by monetizing a previously uncollected waste stream. In this way, waste workers are fairly compensated for their important work of diverting plastic waste that would otherwise pollute our natural world and contribute further to the current ecological crisis.
Thank you for your continued support of LINNÉ and our valued partners.
