Ocean Bottle is a social impact brand first, reusable bottle brand second. On a mission to prevent 7 billion plastic bottles in weight from entering the ocean by 2025, Ocean Bottle enables companies and individuals to join the fight against the ocean plastic crisis. Each Ocean Bottle sold funds collection equivalent to 1000 plastic bottles in weight, before they reach the ocean.
Through its partners, Ocean Bottle helps to set up long-term infrastructure for plastic collection, while supporting livelihoods in coastal communities worst affected. Ocean Bottle is a high-growth start-up that gives over 15% of its revenue to impact, and has so far prevented almost 8 million kgs of plastic from entering the ocean.
