Source supply from regions where the Ocean Plastics problem really originates.

How is ocean-bound plastic defined?

  • The source country or region lacks waste management infrastructure and collection incentives.
  • The infrastructure is being overwhelmed by population growth or tourism.
  • There is a significant risk to wildlife if plastic contaminates their ecosystem.
  • It is found within 50km (30mi) distance of an ocean coastline or major waterway that feeds into the ocean.
