Have you ever wondered how plastic ends up in our oceans?
As a society we have come to depend on plastic in many aspects of our lives
But current methods of recycling and waste management can’t keep up with the amount of plastic generated
There is growing demand for collecting recyclable plastic, like plastic bottles, because they can be turned into new products, and so have a value
80% of the waste that ends up in the ocean is non-recyclable
Non-recyclable plastics have no value and therefore are not collected
We’re building a technology platform and community committed to the recovery of ocean-bound non-recyclable plastic
