Who We are

Precious Plastic Mauritius is a non for profit organisation, providing solutions to plastic waste and cleaning our beaches and mangroves.

Precious Plastic aims to create a recycling economy and help the condition of the people living on the South-Est of Mauritius who have been affected by the Wakashio Oil Spill and the covid-19.

Precious Plastic Mauritius relies on an extraordinary involvement of the local community of Blue Bay. Our common thread is a commitment to solving the problem of plastic pollution in our Oceans.
