OWP // OCEAN WASTE PLASTIC

WHO WE ARE

Pack Tech has developed, designed and supplied innovative packaging since 1946. Our headquarter is located in Denmark and we work with factories in China, India and Denmark. We have local offices in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Spain, Italy, England, China, USA and Australia.

 

Since 2013 we have been working with Ocean Waste Plastic in an effort to influence the world market to use packaging that supports the environment.

Since 2013 we have been working with the concept of taking plastic from the oceans as a result of the OWP packaging sold. Finding our way to manufacture packaging in recycled material and as a result hereof removing plastic from the oceans has been long and difficult, and there were times where we almost gave up. Today most companies can work with recycled plastic, but just a few years ago this was something not seen before in the beauty industry. In 2017 we finally had a break through – and now we proudly clean the oceans by supplying customers with packaging made in OWP – Ocean Waste Plastic.    

 

See how the concept of saving our planet for 1.000 tons of plastic in 2018 became a reality.

 
OUR VISION

Our vision is to be a part of a sustainable solution to clean the world’s oceans and at the same time prevent new plastic from floating into the oceans.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to create awareness about the issue of plastic waste in our oceans. We want to change both the mindset of our industry and the behavior of consumers so that virgin materials is replaced with PCR-materials that ensure the same amount of plastic being removed from the ocean.

The OWP adventure begins

We started to look into cleaning the oceans in late 2013. The first plastic was collected in 2015 which was very challenging. Not only to have the plastic collected but also to find a way to give this plastic a new life as a recycled raw material as part of the OWP-concept.

 

We are industry leaders

In early 2017 the private equity firm, Blue Equity approached us and wanted to be part of our adventure to save the planet. Blue Equity enabled us to upscale our processes and be the front leader when it comes to removing plastic from the oceans as a result of selling packaging made in OWP.

 

A successful introduction

In the spring of 2018 we introduced the first packaging made from Ocean Waste Plastic to the market. Ever since, the number of brands implementing OWP into their packaging is increasing on a weekly basis.

Sourcing & Verification

We source recycled plastic (OWP) and convert it into beautiful, new packaging designs. We test and analyze all the plastic we receive and use, so that our customers can be sure of its origin and composition.

 

We constantly try to find new ways to achieve a more sustainable future for the environment and the packaging industry. OWP (Ocean Waste Plastic) is one of them.
