REVERSING THE TIDE OF OCEAN PLASTIC

Our world’s oceans, shores, and waterways are clogged with millions of tons of waste plastic that is wreaking havoc on natural ecosystems. The images are everywhere – sea turtles entangled in plastic nets, seabirds feeding plastic to their young, and sea life everywhere starving with bellies bloated full of plastic. This is a future we find unacceptable.

8 MILLION TONS

8 million metric tons of plastic enter the oceans annually! This makes plastic pollution an extremely abundant “stranded resource” that can be recycled to significantly reduce the use of virgin plastic material. Recovered ocean plastic can replace almost any plastic product being made today. Our partners are choosing ocean plastics to make everything from zippers and buttons, to fabric, carrying cases, credit cards, sunglasses, coolers and more.

LOCAL SOURCES. GLOBAL IMPACT.

At Oceanworks we partner with local collection and processing agents around the world to bring an increasing variety of ocean plastic materials to consumers. We document the chain of custody of the material from “shore to store” ensuring the material authenticity and quality of all products marked OceansMade™.
