After an extensive period of traveling across Southeast Asia, executing projects across different countries, MicroPlasticsJO is back in the US and is ready to fight single-use plastic pollution in Georgia.
The hiatus following our latest publication has allowed us to enhance our day-to-day operations, facilitating the more efficient design and implementation of projects in collaboration with local communities.
This break has also afforded us the opportunity to amass a significant amount of new resources and information, furthering our documentation and research on single-use plastic pollution.
Up until now, MicroPlasticsJO has predominantly operated in emerging economies characterized by limited waste management resources and a general lack of awareness among the population.
However, having been in Georgia since October, the stark disparity between the inadequate recycling capacities and the excessive consumption of single-use plastics serves as a clear indication that substantial efforts are needed to raise awareness about the detrimental impact of single-use plastic.
To make this happen, the activities for the next 6 months will be articulated around 5 axes.
Developing our local presence
Increasing our online presence
Meeting with waste management practitioners
Designing online and offline projects
Fostering financial support
If you would like to get in touch, we welcome all forms of contribution and collaboration
