Life Out Of Plastic - L.O.O.P.

Life Out Of Plastic - L.O.O.P. is a 100% women-owned organisation that designs and sells green products such as reusable bags and fleece made from rPET fibre - a textile derived from bottle recycling. L.O.O.P.’s mission is to raise awareness among coastal communities about plastic pollution using market tools such as social media to fund education campaigns, art exhibitions, guided tours for school-groups, and beach clean-up activities, all teaching the value of marine ecosystems to communities.

L.O.O.P.’s commercial activities include the sale of products made from 100 % rPET fibre (textile derived from PET bottle recycling) locally manufactured by women, and the provision of environmental educational services to the private sector. Profits fund L.O.O.P.’s awareness campaigns, including an annual public recycled art exhibition and a nationwide beach clean-up. L.O.O.P.’s three-pronged approach combining products and services with public advocacy to bring about social change is unique in the marine conservation field in Peru.
