When we started Tirtyl our vision was simple. Prove that businesses can “do the right thing” and also be successful.
That’s why with every product sold, we collect ocean-bound plastic by passing proceeds from your purchases to Plastic Bank. These proceeds are paid to locals in developing communities as wages to collect ocean-bound plastic, most often on beaches and rivers.
Thanks to your support we doubled our original plastic collection goal in 2021 and collected over 1 MILLION bottles of ocean-bound plastic.
By the end of 2022, we want to increase that number to 5 MILLION. We have no doubt we can do it with your help.

For every tab and sheet sold, we collect a bottle of ocean-bound plastic. Small product, huge impact!
In fact, we’ve collected 49 times the amount of plastic produced across our entire supply chain, making us one of the leading “plastic-negative” businesses globally.

This is achieved through our partnership with Plastic Bank, the world’s leading plastic clean-up organisation with collection infrastructure in developing communities world-wide. Contributions are used to pay wages to locals in Indonesia, Brazil and Haiti who harvest ocean-bound plastic waste, mostly from rivers and polluted zones in close proximity to the ocean. Much of the plastic is processed and up-cycled into the private sector as new consumer goods.
It’s a real win-win. We’re creating a cleaner planet, whilst supporting communities in need!
