Ocean Bottle is a social and environmental impact company that funds plastic collection through the sale of customized insulated water bottles.
Every Ocean Bottle funds the collection of 1,000 plastic bottles in weight through a partnership with Plastic Bank, a global organization with ethical recycling ecosystems that are traceable through the IBM blockchain.
Plastic is collected by locals from some of the worst affected coastal communities in Haiti, the Philippines, Brazil, and Indonesia. Plastic collectors can then exchange plastic for money or receive digital credit to swap for tuition, tech goods, healthcare, and microfinance.
