Last year we reported that Method and recycler Envision Plastics teamed up to pioneer a new recycling process to create ocean post consumer recycled plastic that is the same quality as virgin HDPE plastic.
Now, Method and Envision Plastic has successfully launched limited-edition packaging for Method's new product from ocean-recovered and PCR HDPE plastic.
While Method is focused on collecting enough usable ocean plastic to create a significant supply and turning it into bottles, their main goal is to raise awareness on plastic pollution.
Scientists estimate that several million tons of plastic make its way into the oceans every year, polluting the environment and hurting marine populations.
According to Adam Lowry, co-founder and chief greenskeeper of Method. "Method's ocean plastic bottle demonstrates in the extreme that recycling is possible. By recycling and reusing plastic to make our bottles, we turn off the tap of plastic flowing into our oceans and take the first, most important step toward solving the ocean plastic problem."
