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.

OUR OCEANS ARE IN CRISIS

100% RECYCLED OCEAN PLASTIC

In supplying 100% recycled ocean plastic, we are championing the clean-up of our oceans and transforming plastic debris into useful products.

DOCUMENTED FROM SHORE TO SHELF

COMMUNITY SOURCES. GLOBAL IMPACT.

We work with local collection partners around the world, creating meaningful employment and cleaner waterways.

OCEANWORKS PLASTICS BENEFITS

The first material Oceanworks is working with is HDPE, 100% collected and recycled from ocean plastic. It has all the same properties as virgin material, but is a responsible choice that is helping people and planet to be healthier. This material carries additional assurances like the fact that it is ethically collected for a living wage. Our plastic also has a transparent supply chain, with documentation from collection source to retail shelf.

OUR COMMITMENT TO CLEAN OCEANS

We are working hard to positively impact our world by partnering with experts who understand the global challenges of ocean plastics and what methods will work best and fastest to combat them. We believe in making change at the local level, so we are working with existing collection groups around the world so that collection moneys go directly to the community where the waste was collected, all while additionally benefitting from cleaner local waterways.
