With the launch of our sunglasses made of certified plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, we were able to show that it was possible to make high-quality products from ocean plastic. As we return to the patch, we want to ensure that the collected plastic continues to be seen as a material with value.
By recycling the collected plastic into durable products, we aim to make the cleanup operational costs, to a large extent, financially self-sustainable. Currently, we will not be selling our collected plastic to companies, but for the next products, we are looking for product partners with capabilities in product design, development, manufacturing, and go-to-market strategies. For the collected plastic that cannot be mechanically recycled, we are investigating alternative recycling methods.
