Every year, around 10 million tons of plastic waste flood the world's oceans. More than 663 species are affected by this waste catastrophe. The causes include, among other things, plastic bags, foils or plastic bottles.
But plastic is not only an environmental problem in the sea, but also in the soil. The Institute for European Environmental Policy (IEEP) estimates that microplastic pollution on land is up to 32 times higher than in the oceans.
What can we do about it?
Waste that is not created does not end up in the ocean.

Every individual bears responsibility for this. Macma also takes this important issue very seriously. With our concept 'packing without plastic' we avoid any unnecessary plastic packaging.
Our environmentally friendly packaging is made of recycled paper and can easily be disposed of in the paper garbage can, as it is neither foiled nor laminated.
Plant for the planet
We support the children and youth initiative Plant-for-the-Planet and are happy to donate trees to help children fight for a better climate and a better future.
Aktionsgemeinschaft Artenschutz (AGA) e.V.
(action community for the protection of species)
The famous biologist Edward O. Wilson said "We should preserve every fragment of biodiversity as invaluable and learn to deal with it and understand what it means to mankind." There is still a long way to go, but the AGA is taking it - and we are supporting them.

CO2 Saving 2020
We have made our contribution for 2020!
Only through the power of the sun, Macma has been able to generate 95.8 MWh of energy in 2020.
By using a solar system, around 55.8 tons of CO2 were avoided.
