The Eco-Challenge supports sustainable development with a new plastic vision, where waste and pollution are designed out, products and materials are kept in use and natural systems are regenerated, contributing to the future of sustainability in Latin America and the Caribbean. It will focus on identifying scalable and sustainable solutions that will allow the industry and the consumers to go beyond plastics use and to build a world where they will not become waste by reducing, recycling and reinventing.
In order to achieve these objectives, the program aims to work with young innovators and entrepreneurs from the OAS Member States developing innovative solutions that address the priorities of reinventing and recycling the use of PET, and to strengthen the consumer engagement in developing actions that will support the plastic circular economy.
Reduce the amount of plastic we use and recycle more plastic to keep the material in the circular economy.
