Joel Tasche, CleanHub: building a scalable solution to stop the most harmful plastic waste from entering the environment

Joel Tasche, is the CEO and Co-Founder of CleanHub. Seeing the impact of plastic waste first-hand whilst travelling Joel wanted to create a scalable solution that would stop non-recyclable plastic entering the environment.

After extensive research Joel co-founded CleanHub to tackle this issue. CleanHub work with plastic-using brands that want to be part of the solution. These brands finance the collection of non-recyclable plastic from regions of the world that lack proper waste management systems. CleanHub then work with verified partners that collect and process the plastic in the most responsible way before it enters into our rivers and oceans. Everything is underpinned by a tech platform that authenticates the work done, giving consumers the confidence they can buy from responsible brands.
