This small tropical island is known as “Diver’s Paradise”. Bonaire attracts divers, snorkelers, wind- and kite surfers from around the world. Yet this paradise has a waste problem, on land and in the sea. The east coast is flooded with plastic marine debris and the local dump for waste is taking up precious space.
Together with Boneiru Duradero we are looking if plastic trash that’s now dumped, can be turned into cash for the island. Through recycling of local plastics, we want to produce local products that do not have to be imported anymore. This creates jobs, saves costs and saves the environment.
