ABOUT

TONTOTON collects and recycles low or no value plastic that is often ignored. The project operates currently in 3 locations in Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City, Hon Son island, and Phu Quoc Island. TONTOTON’s program gives workers more income opportunities as they get to recover all forms of plastic, instead of just high-value materials as well as getting additional debris out of the environment. All rescued plastics are sent to a co-processing facility to generate Alternative Fuels and Raw Materials (AFRM), preventing the possibility of them ever becoming marine litter
