The Ocean Cleanup Introduces First Product Made with Ocean Plastic Pollution

Sunglasses Made From the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, with 100% of the Proceeds Funding the Continuation of the Cleanup

Rotterdam, the Netherlands, October 24, 2020 – The Ocean Cleanup, the Dutch non-profit organization developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic, today presented their plan to go full circle in their mission: creating a product from the plastic they recovered from the ocean to help fund the continued cleanup. The organization has taken its first batch of plastic certified from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP), recycled it, and turned it into something useful and durable: sunglasses. Through a contribution of EUR/USD 199, supporters have the chance to own a piece of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and help fund the continuation of the cleanup, as 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the next cleanup operations.
