    Every contribution of any size is a vote for the Social Plastic movement. Every $1 proves your action to change the world. This is your way to show that you want to see companies use recycled Social Plastic instead of new plastics. If you ask for it, they will deliver. Together we can change the world. Every contribution acts as an online petition to prove that people want to help reduce poverty and plastic waste by purchasing products made from recycled Social Plastic.
