Our solution is based on the philosophy and success of the Norwegian bottle recycling system (which ensures 97% of bottles being recycled). This turns the return rate of plastic waste upside down. By giving plastic a value we incentivize people to clean it up and deposit the waste instead of throwing it in nature.
Empower is creating a plastic waste fund. This is used to pay people who deliver plastic waste to our stations. For every kg of plastic delivered, the person is rewarded a digital EMP Token worth $1.
