The plastic origin is verified by our partner Oceanworks. Oceanworks has built a global network of trusted plastic recyclers that turn plastic scrap into usable resins. These processing facilities purchase plastic scrap from collectors and aggregators who gather mismanaged waste that would otherwise be polluting the environment. All Oceanworks Guaranteed Suppliers complete self-assessments that provide visibility into material sources, volume capacities, and collection process compliance. The initial assessment is followed-up with site visits and/or 3rd party audits. Materials are also tested in independent laboratories to ensure that they consistently meet their listed specifications.
