Yes, REBO pays in advance for plastic collections and then it attempts to cover the cost by selling PACCs. The proceedings of the sale of PACCs are entirely used for funding plastic collections with no commission whatsoever to REBO. In the case of not fully covering the cost, REBO pays for it, always maintaining the 1 bottle drunk, 1 bottle collected promise.
Additionally REBO sponsors plastic waste awareness/education campaigns through its partner Project Rescue Ocean.
REBO is also a proud member of “1% for the planet”, the international network of businesses that commit to donate the 1% of gross sales directly to environmental nonprofits. To date “1% for the planet” has invested over $250 million in environmental solutions (to find out more visit ourcertification page)
