Clarins x Plastic Odyssey
reducing plastic waste, on land and at sea
Over the past few decades, plastic production has exploded - over two hundred times what it was in the 1950s. Shockingly, nearly 20 tons of plastic waste are dumped into the ocean every minute. The impact on wildlife and the natural ecosystem is simply unsustainable.
As part of our commitment to protecting the environment, Clarins is proud to support Plastic Odyssey, a one-of-a-kind sailing expedition to
help combat plastic waste in our waters
The initiative aims to tackle seaborne plastic waste at the source - on land -
by connecting actors from across the world
encouraging local initiatives, and taking action towards a world without plastic waste.
The 40-meter boat will undertake a round-the-world trip to collect and reuse plastic found in the sea, alongside supporting entrepreneurs in developing countries to develop local recycling economies and stimulate jobs through plastic waste.
How? Using machinery powered by open-source technology, its 20-strong crew can assess plastic waste directly on board, before sorting and stocking it for reuse on dry land. More than a boat
Plastic Odyssey is a mobile laboratory.
The crew are expected to
visit over 30 countries on three continents
