Each year, at least 8.8 million tons of plastics leaks into the ocean and packaging is the number one generator of plastic waste in the world.
At Asquan, we believe in a beauty industry that globally preserves the environment, values people and celebrates differences. We constantly find new ways to achieve a more sustainable future for both the environment and the packaging industry.
Offering most of our packaging in refillable and recyclable designs and materials. In this way, we gravitate towards building a circular economy, leaving behind single-use plastics.
For a good start to 2021, we have decided to be even more innovative and go beyond our usual business model. Through our Asquan’s Ocean Waste Collection Program (OWCP), we are proud to announce that we have joined the movement against plastic pollution while improving lives of our society’s most underprivileged ones - empowering a regenerative society.
Through a blockchain-secured tokens system, the people collecting the plastic can redeem the wastes they collect against food, housing, education tuition and health insurance.
How does it work?
- For each gram of plastic used for your project, Asquan will contribute to collecting a percentage of its equivalent weight of ocean waste plastic.
How do you benefit?
- Firstly, by being an integral part in cleaning up our oceans, you will have the opportunity to create positive sustainable environmental and social impact
- Secondly, you will benefit from a customised digital certificate displaying the amount of plastic collected on your behalf. Through this certificate, you will be able to promote your brand and resonate with your customers
- And finally, through a certified label, you will be able to ensure the transparency and the credibility of the sustainability claim of your products at the end of the supply chain.
Putting value creation at the heart of our partnerships is key for Asquan sustainability journey. Through the OWCP initiative, we would reinforce our commitment towards achieving sustainability, collectively.
Contact your Asquan sales representative for more details about the initiative and how you can be a part of it.
