We are grateful to have supportive partners that enable

us to protect the ocean.

Plastic Bank is a social enterprise that builds recycling ecosystems in
under-developed communities to improve livelihoods and protect the ocean. The collected plastic is reborn as Social Plastic®, which is developed into products and packaging. This important work is developing the regenerative society to create a circular plastic economy by reintroducing recycled plastic back into the supply chain. Our partnership through OceanHero supports the continuation of this important work to protect the oceans!

"OceanHero is pioneering sustainability by turning everyday actions into an opportunity to support our recycling ecosystems in the world's most vulnerable coastal communities."

-David Katz
