solving plastic pollution at source
Plastic waste is choking our seas and threatening ecosystems and livelihoods in South East Asia. Striving for cleaner seas, less plastic wasted and a more circular economy requires fundamental change throughout the plastic value chain.
SEA circular is an initiative of UN Environment Programme and the Coordinating Body on the Seas of East Asia (COBSEA) to inspire market-based solutions and encourage enabling policies to prevent marine plastic pollution.
SEA circular works with national and provincial governments, private sector corporations, civil society groups and NGOs, to promote circular economy principles.
