Our bottles are made from 100% Ocean Bound Plastic.
At Earth Recovery we are taking action against plastic pollution and single-use plastic, by removing Ocean Bound Plastic from the environment and repurposing it in our bottles. Our plastic raw material is collected in Mexico.
What is Ocean Bound Plastic?
It is plastic that has been collected within 50 kilometers off a coastline or waterway.
Just as important as plastic clean-up operations in the oceans, we must stop it before it gets in.
Plastic makes up 80% of all marine debris.
As stated by Ocean Conservancy, “Every year, 11 million metric tons of plastics enter our ocean on top of the estimated 200 million metric tons that currently circulate in our marine environments.”
Earth Recovery collaborates with several third-parties along the supply chain. It starts with community based collection of plastic waste, which is then recycled and manufactured into our bottles.
Waste-Picking Community Collection Centers are Nest assessed.
The waste-picking community collection centers have been assessed by Nest, an independent nonprofit organization. Nest provides a set of standards to assess ethical compliance in informal work environments. These standards prioritize workers' rights and interests through fair wages and safe working conditions.
Recycling and Processing
Once the Ocean Bound Plastics are collected, our plastics partner, Envision Plastics recycles and processes the raw material for reuse. Every pound of Ocean Bound Plastic is potential pollution transformed into a recyclable resource.
