VI Plastics is a social enterprise business in the British Virgin Islands. Our goal is to create beautiful and useable products from recycled plastics collected in the BVI. The sale of products generates revenue to sustain our plastics processing operation and contributes to the recycling infrastructure of the territory.

The business was formed by Carrie Wright. After visiting the BVI in 2014 and 2015 as a charter tourist, Carrie decided to move to the BVI from Canada with her family to start a plastics recycling operation. Her previous work experience includes government research and strategic policy and social innovation. VI Plastics reflects her interest in using innovative approaches to contribute to improving social and environmental conditions.
