We want to give the plastic collected from the ocean a new life. Our plan is to recycle the plastic and develop our own branded durable products. By recycling the collected ocean plastic into beautiful products that are made with certified plastic from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, we aim to make the cleanup operational costs, to a large extent, financially self-sustainable.
Our objective is to valorize as much of the harvest as technically and commercially possible, and we have now transformed the ghost nets from our Mission One catch into our first product – sunglasses. To learn more, visit theoceancleanup.com/sunglasses/
