Blockchain Development Company (BCDC) – A member of the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance –

Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP)


BCDC, through its RecycleToCoin project, is launching the scheme. It will allow; through its partners like the Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP), everyday families and companies all over the world to first calculate and then offset their entire annual plastic footprint. Unlike the often-controversial carbon offset schemes which can seem intangible, BCDC’s Global Plastic Offset Scheme will only support projects proven to tackle plastic pollution; while supporting others which will help reuse current and future plastics. Its funding will also be recorded on the immutable blockchain; so, there will be full accountability to all stakeholders

New Life Solutions


These projects will include incentivised recycling for consumers and companies, which will encourage everyone to make the change needed when disposing of plastics which are readily recyclable. They will also include projects to reduce plastic pollution, like their partners the Plastic Bank and PDP are involved in.
The BCDC Global Plastic Offset Scheme will also support and operate “New Life Solutions” around the world to divert plastic (both recyclable and non-recyclable) in the future from ending up in landfill or the environment. In the case of non-recyclable plastic; turning that and other types of hard to recycle plastic into new, usable materials.

UC Santa Barbara


The current numbers for plastic ever-produced; a study, led by Roland Geyer, an industrial ecologist at UC Santa Barbara, tallies the sheer amount of plastic humans have produced, how it’s used and ultimately where it ends up are incredible. In total, we have produced 9.1 billion tonnes of plastic, with an astonishing 5.4 billion tonnes of this either currently in landfill – nearly 60% of plastic we have ever produced has not been disposed of efficiently or recycled. Further to this, the amount is set to increase to 28.7 billion by 2050, with 13.2 billion tonnes either discarded in landfill or remaining in our environment – still at 45%.

Plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and the number will jump another 20% by 2021.

It takes up to 500 years to decompose plastic items in landfill



This amount is will increase to 28.7 billion tons of plastic resins produced by 2050 with 13.2 billion tons of plastic discarded either in landfill or the environment.




Working with companies to assess and record their annual plastic footprint; GPOS then ensures that each company can invest in projects which allow them to offset that plastic by the same amount and become Plastic Neutral. All offset projects must prove that they reduce a set amount of plastic pollution, recycle a set amount of plastic or repurpose a set amount. All of which will be recorded on the immutable Blockchain

An average family of 4 will put 40kg of plastic per year into the refuse and only a small portion of this is easily recycled by local councils. We estimate that by investing just £60 per year into GPOS projects, each family will become Plastic Neutral.

By buying BCDC Tokens (tokens can be purchased now from by bank transfer), companies and families will be able to use them to offset their plastic footprint. The Offset Scheme will accept both BCDC Tokens and the currency of the country you reside in as payment to offset your annual plastic footprint.


Starting in Q2 of 2018 in the central belt of Scotland. We will be trialing picking up all of the plastic, aluminium and steel items you recycle direct from your home as part of your annual GPOS membership. Ensuring you and your family lead the fight in plastic pollution.

This trial will roll-out to the rest of the UK and all over the world from Q3 but we need your support by way of an annual subscription to do this. Your subscription will ensure that you and your family are Plastic Neutral in a recorded and immutable manner.

Your Annual Subscription to GPOS will also award you the same value of BCDC Tokens as your annual subscription. You can choose to give the BCDC Tokens back to us (we will let you know how) and receive a second GPOS year of subscription with our compliments. Or you can hold onto them to use in other BCDC projects in the future. The choice is yours.

We are currently in talks with numerous plastic pollution abatement projects around the world. To partner with and invest in them, ensuring true global plastic-offset. It is imperative we tackle the plastic problem head on and encourage all projects involved in fighting plastic pollution to contact us and join the BCDC Global Plastic-Offset Scheme. We believe our initiative is a fantastic way of combating this, and every purchase of a BCDC token will allow us to grow the scheme and fight the scourge of plastic pollution.
