We feature eco-friendly products made of recycled materials from our oceans to raise awareness for marine pollution. Our own products are already in the making.
We need to act now.
According to scientists, an estimated 9.2 million metric tons of plastic waste ends in our oceans every year. Once photodegraded through sunlight, the debris becomes a danger to sea life and -birds.
The dead whale, its stomach full of plastic waste, the dolphin that got tangled up in a plastic ghost net and had to drown miserably or the deformed sea turtle whose shell has grown in a plastic six-pack ring. Once you have seen these images, you can’t get them out of your head.
The solution to this merely isn't about removing all the plastic from the seas, but rather about stopping it to enter and pollute our oceans in the first place.
We need to adopt a new mindset. We need to rethink the way we design, produce, consume and dispose of products in the future. We need to take the next step into a more ecological-efficient circular economy.
Metric tons of plastic a year
More plastic than fish in the sea
Of all seabirds have plastic pieces in their stomache
We urgently need to rethink how we produce, consume and dispose of plastics.

We strive for a future, in which an eco-conscious behaviour of organizations and individuals and an optimized circular economy contribute to preventing the pollution of our oceans.
We share solutions to reduce plastic waste in our oceans.
By developing and marketing eco-friendly and sustainable products made from ocean plastic, we contribute to an enhanced circular economy and draw attention to the problem of marine pollution.
