REVERSING THE TIDE OF OCEAN PLASTIC

Ocean plastic is an abundant “stranded resource” that can replace the use of virgin materials and then be recycled and reused endlessly, reversing the tide of plastics filling our oceans. We are continuously adding collection sites and types of materials offered to brands in product development.

8 MILLION TONS

8 million metric tons of plastic enter the oceans annually. 80% of that comes from land based sources. Oceanworks, together with partners around the globe, is sustainably and ethically harvesting plastic from coastal areas where waste is mismanaged. The plastic we utilize is 100% recycled from this coastal harvest, thereby taking it out of it’s inevitable flow to the ocean.

We collect plastic in many locations where there are no substantial financial opportunities available for people. Our mission is to create meaningful employment and positive local impact in these communities.

COMMUNITY SOURCES. GLOBAL IMPACT.

We work with local collection partners around the world, creating meaningful employment and cleaner waterways. We document the supplying chain of custody from shore to shelf, ensuring the authenticity of the material content, source and collection process. 

DOCUMENTED FROM SHORE TO SHELF

CLEAN OCEANS COMMITMENT

Oceanworks sourced plastic is documented from collection source to retail shelf. We follow the material and its collection source and then monitor the chain of custody all the way through to the final product. This de-risks the use of ocean plastic, giving brands and factories assurances that the ocean plastic was ethically collected for a living wage.
