Why Searious Business?
We WILL be held accountable by next generations on the way we tackle plastic
pollution. About 80% of all sea birds have plastic in their stomachs. One in four of all fish.
This disturbing fact leads up to the next. About 93% of all adults are tested positive for the plastic chemical BPA every year. And it gets worse: scores of chemicals are twice as high in children from 6-12 years old as in adults.
Business as a force to do good
It's easy to say things have to change. But generally, that doesn't actually change anything. Searious Business was founded to show companies there is another way, and wants to help them lead by example. We believe in the power of innovation and entrepreneursip to address complex environmental challenges.
Changing the game
Searious Business stands out by using disruptive innovation at the intersection of technology, sustainability and social change. We are passionate about improving effectiveness of for-profit organizations as agents of change. Creating innovative, economically advantageous alternatives at the source, Searious Business collaborates with companies and others to strategically assess internal plastic use and reduce external impacts on ocean ecosystems.
Let us help you to define and implement more sustainable ways of producing and distributing goods.
Willemijn Peeters, Director Searious Business, wins Plastic Recycling Europe Award 2018
"Willemijn Peeters has put the full force of her personality and very considerable capabilities into establishing an initiative to prevent plastics from ending up in the environment, by helping businesses implement more sustainable ways of producing and distributing goods," said Ton Emans.
"She has done this by herself, not as part of a larger organization. That takes courage, conviction and commitment, which she has shown and why she was unanimously voted ambassador of the year."
