From the first time we heard of Ocean Bottle, we knew it was something different. Something impactful, a bottle that represents so much more than just something we drink from. Ocean Bottle is made in order to create an economy for plastic. William Pearson, the founder, grew up in the same area as us in Norway, so it feels very familiar and right to sell these bottles. Seeing what he has created is very impressive.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT: Ocean Bottle is an award winning bottle made of stainless steel and recycled ocean bound plastic (BPA free). It has a dual opening, a wider one to poor from and a more narrow one to drink from. Part of the bottle can be used as a cup. The bottle has vacuum insulation, keeping drinks cold for 18 hours or hot for 9 hours. The bottle has a carry loop. It is dishwasher safe. The bottle is designed in Norway by award-winning K8 industry design.
For ever Ocean Bottle sold, 1000 plastic bottles are picked up from the ocean.
Every Ocean Bottle sale funds the collection of 11.4 kg plastic! Plastic is collected by locals who can exchange it for money, healthcare, tech products, tuition and micro-finance all via blockchain technology at their local Plastic Bank, creating a long term solution to plastic pollution. The material is then recycled into new products. To learn more, check out this video. Using this map, you can see the places Ocean Bottle is actively picking plastic.
