This Oceanworks Guaranteed HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) is sourced from North America and comes in the form of light grey pellets. It is guaranteed to have been harvested from an oceanbound location, one of the five types of locations where ocean plastic is collected worldwide, which means that it is material collected from communities with no waste management within 50 km of the shore line. Many small islands of developing countries fall into this category. This is in accordance with standards set by renowned marine debris expert, Jenna Jambeck.
This material is the result of an interception program in coastal Haiti to capture refuse before it enters the ocean.
