The plastic pandemic knows no borders. Neither does Terratico.
Plastic bags from Asia have created a floating island in the Pacific Ocean the size of France, Germany, and Italy combined. Plastic bottles from America are found in the stomachs of cod fish which are sold around the world. Is anybody out there still claiming that the plastic pandemic does not affect them?
The world as a mosaic of ideas
Terratico uses local plastic waste in different parts of the world. The waste thus serves as a filler in the concrete of new buildings or playgrounds. Thanks to this, the world is becoming a colorful mosaic of inspiring projects. Have a look at where Terratico has already changed the landscape.
