EPPIC 2020 – 14 Finalists: Who are they?

As you may remember, we announced our 14 finalists of the Ending Plastic Pollution Innovation Challenge (EPPIC) 2020 in September and asked for your patience to discover their profiles. Now, wait no more. We proudly present to you the profiles of our excellent finalists. The finalists’ ideas are varied, ranging from bio-plastics, compostable straws, plastic offsetting, rivers clean-up, re-use models, plastic waste upcycling, etc.

Click the image below to discover the details of how they plan to tackle plastic pollution in Viet Nam and Thailand.

They are in the 3-month incubation programme delivered by UNDP Impact Aim and Viet Nam Silicon Valley (VSV). Early 2021, they will get the opportunity to pitch their ideas in front of our panel of EPPIC judges at EPPIC Final Pitching Competition. Four winners will receive up to USD 18,000 and enroll in a 9-month acceleration journey to upscale their ideas.

We are super excited for the Final Pitching in 2021! How about you?
