Every month we take a look at one of the eco-friendly brands we choose to stock and explain why. This month we introduce you to Ocean Bottle.
In Ocean Bottle's latest ad campaign they state "Oh good. Another overpriced water bottle for £40" then go on to say "Said no Ocean Bottle customer ever". And they're right, because Ocean bottle are not just another eco-friendly refillable bottle company, they're so much more.
For every bottle sold they fund the collection of a whopping 11.4kg of plastic otherwise bound for our oceans, that equates to 1000 plastic bottles. The collectors trade plastic for money, healthcare, tuition, tech, and microfinance.
This is made possible due to Ocean Bottle working with Plastic Bank. Collectors in coastal communities can exchange plastic waste for money or digital credit. This is all done via an efficient IBM blockchain verified plastic collection system provided by IBM.
With 22 million kilograms of plastic entering our oceans each day it's companies like Ocean Bottle who really make the difference with our planet becoming a greener and more eco-friendly place. 80% of Ocean plastic comes from a lack of waste management infrastructure in coastal communities around the world.
Plastic Bank themselves are an ethical company and provide the collectors with a fair income in a sector where that isn't always the case.
Ocean Bottle have an impressive goal for the very near future, by 2025 they aim to collect 80million kgs of plastic which is equivalent to 7 billion plastic bottles, stopping them from ever entering our oceans.
