Every discarded plastic material eventually can make its way downstream to beaches where it breaks down into microplastics. Microplastics are tiny plastic particles that stay on the earth indefinitely, posing a threat to water quality and marine life alike.
Through funding by corporations like yours, we’re developing a new ocean cleanup machine that can recover microplastics throughout American beaches. Advanced ocean cleanup technology like this helps us to not only collect microplastics, but effect change to curb microplastic pollution at its source.
The good news? Much of this debris includes plastics that can be given new life. Upcycling this plastic into new packaging or products not only means less plastic in our oceans, but it avoids the landfills as well. From buttons, to skateboards, to shampoo bottles we’ve worked with a variety of companies to give this plastic a second home. Talk to our team and we’ll work on creative upcycling solutions, making your company part of the circular economy.
