Facts & Figures
 
INITIATIVE: PROJECT PLASTIC DESERT - currently fundraising

Initiator: Soul Surfers Foundation in corporation with local NGO
Goal: To re-use plastic waste lying in the desert, create jobs for local residents at the same time.
Fundraising goal by Soul Surfers Foundation: Before July 2013 the amount of € 10.000,-
Synopsis: Plastic Desert Project is a project operating in the arid coastal lands of Northern Peru. Where plastic bags pollute the desert landscape with many different colors. An unrealistic sight and a threat to life on earth and that of the oceans. Preventing it from becoming part of the already existing ‘Plastic Soup’, Soul Surfers Foundation puts effort into giving the plastic a second life while offering jobs to local people and providing educational experiences for youth.
