Our partner, Oceanworks, works with many suppliers from around the world who purchase local plastic scrap (called feedstock) and process it into usable plastic pellets, flakes or yarns. These companies are called processors or recyclers. Oceanworks is not a recycler nor do they manage any of these facilities directly. Oceanworks works closely with the recyclers to promote material quality, origin authenticity, and adherence to international environmental and labor laws. Due to Oceanworks’ vast global network of suppliers they are able to scale rapidly to match the ever increasing demand for recycled ocean plastic resins and textiles.
