The Future We're Building

Around the world, something incredible is happening — together, people are sparking a revolution in the way we live and thrive on this planet. We are building a world in which only truly necessary and non-toxic plastics are produced, and even those are re-used, repaired, or recycled. As the sparks of this global movement catch fire, we are daring to imagine a future in which respect for our beautiful planet is woven into the actions of every corporation, government and individual — and we are collaborating with brilliant people to transform this vision into reality.

The Work We're Funding

Our fund supports a diverse constellation of incredible people who are working to re-imagine and reshape the future. We are especially inspired by initiatives that catalyze change as close to the source of the plastic problem as possible, and by radically collaborative projects that contribute to the strength of the exhilarating, multi-organizational movement that is currently sweeping the globe.
