The reusable bottle that stops 1000 plastic bottles from entering our oceans and helps reduce poverty at the same time.
22 million kgs of plastic flow into our oceans each day. It is now estimated that the amount of plastic in our seas could double by 2030.
75%+ of ocean plastic is due to a lack of waste management infrastructure. Ocean Bottle has a solution to saving our oceans and hopes to involve the RYA member community in a unique partnership.
Since launching in January 2019 the startup has been working to build a new currency for plastic waste, focusing on investing in waste management infrastructure and helping to reduce poverty at the same time, all with the help of beautifully designed reusable bottles.
With the sale of every Ocean Bottle, 1000 ocean-bound plastic bottles (11.4kg of plastic) are collected in impoverished coastal communities where plastic pollution is worse before the plastic enters our oceans.
With the help of partners Plastic Bank, Plastic collectors can exchange plastic waste for money or credit via blockchain technology to spend on tuition, tech goods, health care and micro-finance.
By the end of February 2020 they will have funded the collection of plastic waste equivalent to 40 million plastic bottles.
The Ocean Bottle has been designed to last a lifetime.
