Starboard calculates and publishes its full plastic footprint, to be totally transparent about our role in the plastic economy.
Starboard is also the first to put an internal price on plastic based on their usage. We assign a dollar value to each material based on its lifespan, recycled/bio content, and harm to the environment, then multiply this by how much is used to make our products.
The final amount funds a pilot program that incentivizes clean-ups of plastic from the beaches in Pattaya, Thailand to offset our plastic impact.
So how are we currently doing?
To follow our progress and see how many kilos we still need to collect to reach our goal, see our POP chart.
