With the sale of every bottle Ocean Bottle funds the collection of 11.4kg of plastic, the equivalent to 1000 plastic bottles, before it enters the ocean. The brand also invests in people-powered waste management whereby plastic waste is collected by locals in coastal communities and can then be exchanged for money, healthcare, tech products, school tuition and micro-finance at their local Plastic Bank.
Each Ocean Bottle is designed to last a lifetime, made of up-cycled ocean bound pastic and stainless steel, with a dual opening to pour both hot and cold drinks.
22 million kgs of plastic enter our oceans every day. By 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our oceans. To date, Ocean Bottle has helped collect over 800,000kg of ocean bound plastic. A drop in the ocean but certainly an important one.
