Seas & Straws Spotlight, Issue #027 -- Setting up a recycling structure in Bocas del Toro

In the issue: Setting up a recycling structure in Bocas del Toro

Hello there!

Exciting news! I have started a partnership with One Earth - One Ocean (oeoo), a renowned German NGO dedicated to fighting ocean plastic pollution worldwide. Together, we're initiating positive change right here in Bocas del Toro, Panama. The island archipelago consists of numerous mangrove islands, where ocean plastic accumulates with no one addressing the issue.

Teaming up with local plastic processing company Bocas Recycle Center, our mission is to establish a comprehensive recycling structure, introducing oeoo's expertise in plastic recovery and recycling to our shores.

The first step is to coordinate the setup of their new operation that starts with marine debris removal and gets to the root of the problem.

But this endeavor is more than just a cleanup; it's a crucial step towards building a sustainable, trash-free future for Bocas del Toro and catalyzing change throughout the Caribbean. Stay tuned for more exciting updates on this transformative journey!
