JOIN DUCK TO HELP REDUCE PLASTIC WASTE & PREVENT 11.5 MILLION PLASTIC BOTTLE EQUIVALENTS** FROM ENTERING THE OCEAN OR LANDFILLS
Every day, more and more plastic waste is polluting our oceans and impacting marine life. SC Johnson, the manufacturer of Duck is committed to addressing the growing crisis of plastic waste, which is why the company has teamed up with Plastic Bank® to reduce the amount of plastic waste entering the ocean or landfills, while also helping to address poverty. This partnership includes opening more than 500 collection points in countries with high volumes of uncollected plastic waste and has the objective to prevent more than 1.5 billion plastic bottle equivalents from reaching the ocean or landfills over 3 years at total SC Johnson level! Because we believe the small steps that we take today will lead to a more sustainable tomorrow.

How does it work?
Through SC Johnson’s global partnership with Plastic Bank®, we help stop plastic waste that could have otherwise found its way into our oceans or landfills, as the plastic is collected within 50 km of an ocean or waterway in countries without a formal waste collection infrastructure. Collectors in Plastic Bank's ecosystems exchange plastic waste for bonuses that help improve household income and accessibility to basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, health insurance and digital connectivity.
