Oceanworks - Sea Plastics Differently
SEA PLASTICS DIFFERENTLY
At Oceanworks, we believe there is an opportunity in any challenges we face, including the global plastic pollution crisis.
8 MILLION METRIC TONS OF PLASTIC END UP IN THE OCEAN EACH YEAR
Our world's ocean, shores, and waterways are clogged up with millions of tons of plastic waste wreaking havoc on our planet. The images are everywhere – sea turtles entangled in plastic nets, seabirds feeding plastic to their young, to finding it in our food chain. By 2050, plastic in the oceans will outweigh fish. This future, we find unacceptable.
We believe that new materials and delivery systems are critical. While we innovate and develop these new materials, we must increase the demand and growth of a circular plastics economy.
OUR GLOBAL NETWORK
Partnering with local businesses from around the world recovering, sorting, and distributing recycled ocean plastic materials, many from remote areas lacking waste management systems. We support Oceanworks partners long-term goals of protecting the ocean, recovering waste, and recirculating materials while creating resource recovery jobs in their local communities.
The Oceanworks Guaranteed Marketplace delivers multiple options and choices for recycled ocean plastic resins, yarn, materials, and products from our global network of trusted suppliers.
LET'S PROTECT OUR OCEANS
No global movement starts with individuals. It takes many people united behind something big - like solving the plastic pollution crisis. Together with our staff, vendors, partners, collectors, processors, NGO's, local governments, stakeholders and our customers, we'll work non-stop on a collaborative vision: Design a world without plastic pollution.
