Ocean Bound plastic
Ocean bound plastic is plastic waste that is collected and processed before it reaches the ocean's shore or from the shoreline itself. The processing of ocean bound plastic prevents hundreds of thousands of tonnes of waste that could pollute waterways and the ocean and threaten the life of wildlife that inhabit them.

Why buy products made from OBP?
1. DIVERTS PLASTIC FROM LANDFILL
In Australia, 84% of plastic waste is sent to landfill and takes thousands of years to decompose. To put this into perspective, that's 2.1 million tonnes or 42 million 600ml PET water bottles EVERY SINGLE YEAR. Collecting waste before it hits the ocean and ends up in landfill helps to reduce the amount of waste overall and reduces the environmental impacts of landfill.
2. IMPACTS ENVIRONMENTAL AWARENESS
By buying ocean bound plastic, talking about it to friends and family, posting about it on socials or advocating for its use in your business or workplace, you broaden the conversation about the environmental impact of how we live and work. As stakeholders of our environment, community, Government and business sectors all have a part to play.
3. INDIVIDUALS CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE
