How we work
Through a global network of collectors and recycled plastic suppliers, Oceanworks provides brands a clear path to reduce their plastic footprint with reliability and transparency. As a Plastic Action Platform we work with you to measure your plastic footprint, fund plastic waste removal, find sustainable alternatives, and track supply chains from shore to shelf.
Material By Oceanworks
Backed by the Oceanworks® Guarantee and Intelligent Track & Trace, our experience and network of reclaimed plastic suppliers and manufacturers enables quality, reliability, and traceability at scale.
Impac+ By Oceanworks
Both a turnkey resource and an option for brands looking to fight plastic pollution, our IMPAC+ program directly delivers and guarantees the removal of plastic waste from the environment. Otherwise known as plastic offsets or credits.
GLAD TO BE GREEN®
Looking to build on its initial successes with the Glad to be Green® product line, Glad’s team sought out the next member of its family of products to make it more sustainable. Oceanworks emerged as a partner uniquely positioned to help with this challenge due to their focus on identifying and qualifying a large breadth of ocean and ocean bound plastic suppliers and their commitment to quality, reliability, and traceability.
Cocofloss® approached us when they had the idea for their new Cocobrush®. They wanted to do things right, but at the end of the day, they felt like they could do more. That’s where IMPAC+ by Oceanworks came into play. For the sale of every toothbrush, Cocofloss® committed to the removing an additional 10 Cocobrushes worth of oceanbound plastic.
By using recycled plastic, WestPaw could help remove waste from shorelines and make beaches and fishing areas cleaner and safer. Not only would this make a net positive environmental impact, but it would serve as an excellent vehicle to bring attention to the ocean pollution cause. Setting the sustainability initiatives was the easy part, luckily, the team at WestPaw was steadfast in their determination to be part of the solution, rather than a contributor to the problem.
Sperry is a consumer brand synonymous with the water, as its footwear and trusty tread are a mainstay for seafaring civilians. Its SeaCycled® sneaker features liners and laces made from 100 percent recycled plastic and uppers made with a blend also partially composed of recycled plastic. Each pair of these shoes repurposes the equivalent of five recycled plastic bottles, creating a much smaller carbon footprint with each step they take.
Electra had ambitious plans to incorporate ocean-bound plastic into its manufacturing processes, with its sights set on accessories (and accessories are a big part of the cruiser bike culture). The variety and volume of this endeavor required a large amount of material to ramp things up and produce them at scale.
The iZettle design team had specific requirements for their innovative design, a core value of the company's ethos. After Oceanworks reviewed iZettle's ideas and supply chain requirements. Oceanworks guided iZettle through materials feasibility, performance standards, and verification requirements. Based on this initial review, Oceanworks recommended a polypropylene from recycled fishing nets.
