The plastic turned sunglasses made from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch has been certified by DNV GL so buyers can be certain of both origin and authenticity.
The public DNV GL standard provides a best practice to verify the authenticity (Chain of Custody) of abandoned ocean and river plastic and build consumer trust in new products made from reclaimed plastic.
For 18 months DNV GL has worked with The Ocean Cleanup to establish a set of requirements and verification processes, designed to enable consumer trust and transparency, in the burgeoning ocean-plastic market
The Ocean Cleanup ended Mission One and presented our first plastic catch onshore, in Vancouver Canada. The plastic trash will be transformed into sustainable products that will be sold to help fund the continuation of the cleanup operations.
The Ocean Cleanup aims to tackle the 1,000 most polluting rivers, responsible for about 80% of ocean plastic pollution, before the end of 2025.
The Ocean Cleanup, the Dutch non-profit organization developing advanced technologies to rid the oceans of plastic, announces that its latest ocean cleanup prototype system – System 001/B – is successfully capturing and collecting plastic debris.
In-line with its long-standing commitment to helping to ensure a more sustainable future, Trelleborg’s marine and infrastructure operation is supporting The Ocean Cleanup and its bid to rid the world’s oceans of plastic.
This coming May, the first fully operational Ocean Cleanup system will be deployed in the Great Pacific Ocean. The system has been developed over five years of trial and error.
Due to a structural malfunctioning of the cleanup system, we made the decision to return to port earlier than planned. We will set sail as soon as an appropriate weather window is available.
