Ocean Cleanup Program
800 000 plastic bottles 

Empower x New Movements. Since launching New Movements in 2018 we have supported ocean clean-ups across the globe equal to over 800 000 plastic bottles. For every pair we make we support a clean-up of 2.5 kg (equivalent to 200 plastic bottles, 0.5 liter) with our partner Empower.  Based on the idea of using new technology to enable a circular economy and create a cleaner and better world Empower was founded in January 2018. New Movements is proud to be Empowers very first partner and supporter. 

Together with Empower we are building a global plastic waste ecosystem based on the same philosophy as the Norwegian bottle deposit system. By giving financial rewards in return for the deposit of plastic waste we can both stop leakage of plastic into the environment and cost-efficiently incentives collection of leaked waste. The use of Blockchain technology ensures both transparency and traceability throughout the value chain.
