A global alliance for a sustainable future

The Fair Plastic Alliance is an international organization led by waste collection networks and supported by adhering partners in pursuit of its vision of an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable plastic production and recycling industry.

Joining forces around the vision of a fair circular economy

We envision a world where waste workers, entrepreneurs, and brand owners work together to transform the plastic production cycle into a circular economic model, getting plastic waste out of the system while giving workers the dignity and recognition they deserve.

Waste Workers Organizations

Chanja Datti

+ Waste Worker Organizations (WWO) consist in legal entities incorporated by and for the benefit of waste workers, otherwise unrecognized and unrepresented in the target jurisdiction. WWOs collect plastic waste and deliver it to the plastic collection hubs. Ideally, WWOs collaborate with NGOs in order to reach out to most informal waste workers and provide training, regulation as well as shared benefits. Ultimately, WWOs take on control of the FPA Affiliate Companies alongside the Industrial Partners.

Industrial Partners


+ The Industrial Partner is the subject that provides the industrial and management expertise for the accomplishment of a profitable, sustainable, and operationally appropriate plastic recycling plant. In order to pursue this objective, it allocates the necessary capital raised privately or through the FPA platform. Ideally, it is a corporation already involved in the industry that wishes to expand its operations in the target jurisdiction, implementing a business model that allows for social impact in accordance with its CSR strategy. Industrial Partners take on control of Affiliate Companies alongside Waste Workers’ Organizations and/or provide them with technical expertise.

Brand Owner

+ Brand Owners are corporations that hold an interest in acquiring recycled plastic material to support their shift from a linear to a circular production model. Brand Owners acquire recycled material from Affiliate Companies, entitling them to use the FPA seal on their products. Brand Owners eventually provide the startup capital to the Affiliate Companies through loans issued via the FPA, directly or through their subsidiaries, in the form of a special loan and/or long-term commercial agreements.

NGOs and social actors


+ NGOs and social actors provide a crucial role in the institutionalization of the informal network of waste workers operating in the target jurisdiction. In addition to this, NGOs supervise the relationship within and outside the Waste Worker Organizations (WWOs), in order to provide training, prevent and address humanitarian concerns (es.: child labor, forced labor, discrimination and inequality, etc.) as well as disseminate a culture of economic inclusion and environmental sustainability.

Public actors

+ Municipalities, local governmental organizations, and public entities are called to contribute to facilitating the organization and recognition of Waste Worker Organizations, and of the partnerships between them and the Industrial Partners. Governments play a role in shaping the economic policies necessary to make the trade of recycled plastics happen.
