Plastic is polluting our oceans at an astounding rate. The Ocean Bottle is here to stop it.

That equates to 1000 plastic bottles.

Ocean Plastic is growing by 22 million kgs each day.
Our job isn’t to slow this down. It’s to stop it.
The majority of ocean plastic comes from just a few sources.
If we can stop plastic pollution there, we can turn the tap off ocean plastic.
But how do you do that?
We’re not about coming in, cleaning up a beach, and calling it a day. That might keep a beach clean, for, well, a day. Great, not good enough. We’re on a mission to create lasting change.
In short: the problem isn’t only ocean plastic. That’s a symptom.
The problem is a lack of infrastructure and incentives to recycle where this is needed most.
Our mission is to create the systems to intercept ocean plastic at the source.
Over 80% of ocean plastic comes from impoverished regions and the waterways that flow through them, including places like the Philippines and Indonesia. Many who live there are forced to use rivers to dispose of plastic waste because there’s no better alternative. Unfortunately, this means that plastic ends up in our oceans.
What we need to do is shift this behaviour.
1) Build the infrastructure to recycle in these communities.
2) Change the image of plastic. Instead of trash, we see a future where plastic is valuable. Our plan is to reward plastic collectors for collecting and recycling plastic. Tossing a bottle in a river seems ridiculous when you can turn it in for valuable rewards.
They are a multi-award winning organisation who use IBM blockchain to track plastic collection, which means we can see who has collected this plastic and also where & when.
Together, we’re enabling people living in poverty all over the world to make a fair living from collecting plastic – providing them with an income that is up to 3x their normal salary.
This increase in value is life changing. It means they can shift from living beneath the poverty line to being able to put food on the table, send their children to school, afford medical insurance, open their first bank account, finance solar energy and create a fruitful future for the next generation.
Many companies donate a vague “percentage of profits” to various causes, or tack on corporate responsibility as an added layer to their business. The impact is important. That is why we believe in a defined impact per product which is always non-negotiable and it is why this company, its products and its team are focused on sustainability to the core. This means transparency around our impact and empowerment to the consumer. Being a revenue, plastic and profit sharing social enterprise also enables us to do even more, beyond our minimum pledge.
In 5 years, our goal is to prevent over 3 billion plastic bottles each year from entering our oceans and develop a global recycling system where it doesn’t yet exist. By focusing on the source, our impact will be felt in all the world’s oceans.
We need your help to grow our team of plastic collectors.
We’re launching our first Ocean Bottle in Autumn 2018 and we’d love for you to be one of the first to help us put a stop to ocean plastic.
