THIS IS WHAT OCEAN WASTE PLASTIC IS ABOUT
The purpose of OWP is to clean our oceans and, therefore, purchasing OWP packaging results in the removal of the exact same amount of plastic from oceans and rivers. The more packaging that is produced within the OWP concept, the more plastic is removed; that is what OWP is all about.

Our vision & mission
Our vision is to ensure that our oceans are not polluted with plastic waste, and we invite you to be part of this vision.
Our mission is to raise awareness about the fact that plastic pollution is an increasing threat to the health of our oceans and marine wildlife, and to engage companies to share our vision.
WE NEED TO ACT NOW
IT TAKES NATURE
to break down one single plastic bottle*
90 % of all seabirds
have plastic in their stomachs**
We are fully dedicated to clean the world’s oceans and rivers
OWP is a dream of a better future. It is a promise to future generations that we won’t leave them with a dirty ocean.
We have founded a company called ReSea Project. They have one only purpose: To collect plastic from oceans and rivers using local fishermen, and to track and document everything.
The fishermen sail out in their boats to collect plastic from the ocean and from rivers that carry plastic into the ocean. They collect an average of 500 kg/week, and they bring the plastic to land where they sort it into different categories, allowing as much as possible of the collected plastic to be recycled.
TRACK THE PLASTIC
Involve your end users in the difference they make when they purchase your products. We track and document every plastic collection and by using our QR code system, the consumer gets access to data about the plastic collection generated by the packaging they buy. Consumers can very clearly see how they are playing a direct and significant role in the biggest environmental change in history for our oceans. Consumers like to feel part of a solution, and with everyday products like yours, they can be part of saving the oceans. Please contact us to learn more about how to implement the QR code system.
It is crucial for the future health of our oceans that we act now. Studies have shown that even plankton, the tiniest creatures in the ocean, eat microplastics and absorb their harmful chemicals.
Tiny pieces of plastic and hazardous chemicals travel through the food chain and eventually end up on our plate.
We must collect plastic pollution from the oceans and from rivers that carry plastic waste into the ocean.
absorbs 25% of the CO2 in the atmosphere ***
generates 50–80% of the Oxygen we breathe*
The ocean nurtures 80% of life on our planet**
Understandably, no one wants to work, live, or spend time in polluted places. Plastic pollution is therefore not only harming the oceans, but also marine life, the tourism industry, recreational areas, businesses, and, not least, the homes of millions of people. It is time to act.
We are committed to leading the way towards a more sustainable future and clean oceans
We invite you to be part of this; together we can become the difference! Please contact us to learn more about how you can have your packaging supplied in OWP.
