Our partner, Oceanworks, works with local suppliers to promote ethical collection of waste plastic feedstock (scrap). Oceanworks is not a collector nor do they directly manage any collection operations. The plastic scrap is primarily collected by NGOs, governments, local community organizations, and micro entrepreneurs. These organizations aggregate and sort the scrap plastic and sell it to regional recycling facilities in Oceanworks’ network. Every Oceanworks Guaranteed supplier completes a rigorous self-assessment and attestation process to provide detailed information and documentation on: 1) material origin, 2) social and environmental compliance, and 3) material quality. In addition, Oceanworks has partnered with third-party auditors who are available to provide an additional layer of oversight when requested.
