Project Summary:
Tristan da Cunha is the most remote inhabited island in the world. Solid waste is currently burnt. This puts at risk marine and seabird life around the island. The project would have multiple impacts: by recycling plastics it would reduce the risk of plastics entering the ocean; greater use of recycled materials would mean less need for imports, thus freeing money for economic and social projects; reduction of harmful particles in the atmosphere; and support for the Marine Protection Zone.
