The PWFI Ubuntoo Greenhouse aims to

  • Build a community to share knowledge and transfer information for SIDS on solving the plastic leakage crisis
  • Feature all the work that has been carried out to promote island circular economy
  • Demonstrate effective, quantifiable solutions that can address plastic leakage on SIDS
  • Highlight commercially viable solutions (products and services), that can support these islands to achieve their goal
  • Share policy knowledge and proposed interventions

The solutions are filterable by location, organization type, stage of development, island waste value chain impact, industry, plastic targeted, and a feature for organization seeking expertise, partnerships and more.

The knowledge products include reports and articles, best practices and data briefs, business plans, case studies, how to guides, scientific articles and more.

The Ubuntoo Greenhouse collaboration space allows members to share knowledge and best practices and provides collaboration opportunities for those working on the elimination of plastic pollution of marine environment.
