The Plastic Flamingo

It can be exhausting living in this time of pandemic when businesses use plastic for their daily packaging. It doesn’t just pile up our trash bins at home but also dumpsites and possibly the oceans as well. 


This is why Earthlings is happy to announce that we are partnered with The Plaf.

The Plastic Flamingo is a Manila-based social enterprise dedicated to reducing marine plastic pollution. Before it hits the oceans, they collect and recycle plastic waste. Not only having a mission environmentally but socially too; these wastes are transformed into eco-bricks and eco-lumbers that are used to provide shelter for the ones in need. In addition to that, their company believes in women empowerment thus having 80% of women as their employees.

With our partnership with The Plaf, Earthlings’ 5% monthly sales goes directly to paying the women they hired since they are paid by donations to the sorting of the plastic waste that goes directly to a manufacturing plant to create the repurposed plastics.

This being said we encourage everyone to be conscious with the usage and disposing of plastic. The Plaf accepts clean plastic wastes at any drop-off points listed below.
