The 3L Initiative - collects plastic from rivers in Asia to prevent ocean plastic

10 Nov 2021

The Cologne-based Startup was founded in 2019 as the first company to focus on rivers to prevent marine plastic pollution. The social enterprise creates social and environmental impact by using locally built, and very simple (low-tech) technology. This approach allows Plastic Fischer to carry out the services at low-cost. The operations in India and Indonesia are financed by European corporations that want to contribute to solving the global plastic crisis. Organisations can finance Plastic Fischer's operations per ton of plastic collected and processed. The whole process is third-party verified.
