The TerraCycle Global Foundation works with local communities to tackle plastic pollution from all angles
THE GLOBAL WASTE CRISIS
In some developing nations, large populations and rapid urbanization have led to the popularity of cheap, single-use packaging. In these regions that lack adequate waste management infrastructure, low waste collection rates and high littering trends produce substantial pollution both in the surrounding land and marine environments.
LOW WASTE COLLECTION INCREASES RATES OF PLASTIC POLLUTION ENTERING THE OCEAN
LOW WASTE COLLECTION INCREASES RATES OF INFORMAL WASTE PICKING
The TerraCycle Global Foundation is establishing a network of public charities around the world that will develop community-focused solutions to prevent plastic pollution in regions that are the highest contributors to marine plastics. Our approach directly addresses the multiple factors that contribute to the increasing rates of ocean plastics.

CASE STUDY - THAILAND
The TerraCycle Global Foundation has established the TerraCycle Thai Foundation which works with local stakeholders and government officials to install a system of marine plastic capture devices in Thailand.
Tha Chin River Tributary and TerraCycle River Trap Installation
TerraCycle, Inc., the world leader in the collection and recycling of traditionally non-recyclable materials, established the 501 (c)(3) US-based charity TerraCycle Global Foundation in 2018 with initial funding from the PepsiCo Foundation to address the issues of plastic pollution in developing regions.
