A social impact venture striving against global plastic pollution through the implementation of circular economy in Asia.
THE BIG IDEA
Only a fraction of the globally consumed plastic is recycled, reused or properly disposed. A majority is dumped on the streets and beaches, in landfills, rivers and oceans. Needless to say: the ecological, social and economic consequences are dramatic. Project glassic is counteracting this sort of pollution by tackling the problem directly at its cause, with solutions specifically designed for each target market. We provide plastic substitutes, clean beaches and create awareness around the world, targeting locations in South-East Asia, one of the areas most affected by plastic pollution.
Our vision is to achieve a systematic change on the consumption paradigm. We create enterprises all around the world with a clear circular business model. All of these are combating the plastic pollution right at its roots while supporting beach clean-ups and educational projects to raise awareness.
Glassic is changing the local paradigms of our target markets with a social B2B business model, setting the base for a lasting change and circular economy on site.
In our first business in Ko Kut, Thailand, we offer an alternative to plastic bottles for gastronomy, hotels and the tourism industry. The drinking water is locally produced and filled in our multi-use glass bottles, which are elegant, accessible and affordable.
But we go beyond the tourism sector: we also clean polluted areas and create awareness, implemented by locally led and self-sufficient businesses. A complex problem requires a comprehensive solution.
How we work ?
So how does this all work? Our local process consists of four parts: first, the drinking water production, followed by the bottling and the logistical distribution of these bottles to our B2B-customers. Finally, the bottles will be re-collected, cleaned and refilled to close the sustainable cycle.
We empower locals and tourists to embrace nature without polluting it.
