Launched in 2017, WFO Asia aims to address the growing concern of marine pollution and poor waste management practices across Asia.
WHERE WE WORK
WFO Asia currently operates in the following regions:
Hong Kong (with WWF Hong Kong)
Long term, WFO Asia aims to implement marine clean-ups and partnerships and lobby stakeholders across greater South-East Asia (where waste management standards are the lowest) and the Indian Subcontinent.
WFO also encourages projects aiming to facilitate plastic recycling, such as India's first garbage café, located in Chhattisgarh (see video below). This establishment provides a full meal to rag pickers and homeless people in exchange for 1 kg of plastic waste. The collected plastic will be used to build roads in the region.
