Oceanworks mission is to accelerate the market for recycled ocean plastic to clean-up the ocean. They support the circular economy by intercepting plastic waste, ideally before it enters marine environments, and making this valuable resource easily accessible. They further aim to reduce the use of virgin materials and eliminate the demand for new plastic.
Our oceans are in peril and Oceanworks are not just cleaning it up, but using what they find and upcycling it. They further try to intercept plastic waste before it has a chance to get near the ocean. From Alaska to Haiti to Southeast Asia, they are protecting sea life, reducing pollution and minimizing reliance on virgin plastics.
