REVERSING THE TIDE OF OCEAN PLASTIC
Plastic pollution in the worlds oceans is an abundant “stranded resource” that can be recycled to greatly reduce the use of new plastic material currently strangling our oceans. We are adding collection sites and processors to bring a growing variety of plastic materials to businesses.
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 this plastic pollution from coastal areas. The plastic we utilize is 100% recycled from these coastal harvests, thereby keeping it from the ocean.
We currently collect plastic in many locations where there is limited employment opportunities. Our mission is to create employment and positive local impact in these communities.
