TURNING THE TIDE
ON PLASTIC

We are an international, independent organisation committed to keeping the Mediterranean Sea plastic-free and creating a more sustainable future.

We have an ambitious plan

To increase the collection of plastic waste from at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas and turn it to #RecoveredSeasidePlastic – a certified recycled raw material which guarantees source traceability, supply chain transparency and positive environmental impact.

Designed to encourage effective plastic waste collection, sustainable reuse and prevent Mediterranean Sea pollution.

#RecoveredSeasidePlastic is a certified recycled raw material made from plastic waste such as bottles, nylon and fishing nets, collected from at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas – coastlines, rivers, waterways and areas within 50KM from coastline – and saved from ending up in the sea.

It is a circular form of plastic that can be traced all the way back to the point of origin (the specific geo-targeted Mediterranean coastal areas where plastic waste is collected from) through the use of Oracle Blockchain Technology.

Collectors, Recyclers, Manufacturers and Brand Owners now have the opportunity to provide their customers with complete transparency and accuracy about a product’s journey – from plastic waste to finished recycled product – and reveal its positive environmental impact. 

 

From Recovered Seaside Plastic to sustainable products

Introducing the 1st Mediterranean Sea plastic certification – powered by Oracle Blockchain Technology.

Plastic waste collection and certification

Plastic waste found in at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas is collected, GPS and photo tagged on our blockchain platform by a certified network of collectors.

Recycling verification and raw material certification

Recovered plastic waste is then balled and sent to certified recycling partners where it is digitally logged on our blockchain platform, shredded and reworked.

Recycled plastic material certification 

It is then transformed to #RecoveredSeasidePlastic – a recycled and traceable material that can be used in packaging and products.

We have developed an innovative blockchain-powered certification model that allows us to take plastic waste recovered from at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas to the shop shelf. It involves a multi-step monitoring process whereby the source material can be followed through a secure digital pathway powered by Oracle Blockchain Technology, ensuring end-to-end recycled product transparency and traceability. 

#RecoveredSeasidePlastic can now be logged, traced and monitored at every stage of the 'connected journey', ensuring that the origin of recovered plastic is defined, traced, monitored and verified.

Our blockchain platform, tracks the journey from plastic waste collection to finished product, helping collectors, recyclers, manufacturers and brand owners build a sustainable and circular future.

Creating a connected and positive impact journey

We are embracing change, the adoption of blockchain technology, a collaborative culture and a circular approach to reach our end-goal of more plastic waste being recovered, recycled and reused, instead of ending up in the Mediterranean Sea.

  • Through the use of our #RecoveredSeasidePlastic blockchain platform and certification model, powered by Oracle Blockchain Technology, we aim to:

  • chain link icon

    CONNECT the plastics value chain – Collectors, Recyclers, Manufacturers, Brand Owners.

  • Screen monitor with magnifying glass icon

    MONITOR every step of the collection, recycling and reuse process – setting new standards and bringing transparency.

  • Certification badge icon

    CERTIFY the ‘plastic journey’ and  recycled plastic – providing source traceability and credibility that the #RecoveredSeasidePlastic is made from plastic waste collected from at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas and saved from ending up in the Mediterranean Sea.

Through collaboration and donation-based initiatives, we aim to:

Provide incentives for effective collection of plastic waste from at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas – coastlines, rivers, waterways and areas within 50KM from coastline.
Organise the collection of low value plastic waste that would otherwise end up in the Mediterranean Sea.
Empower youth through education and outreach.

With your help we can continue our actions, improve our technology and ensure that more and more plastic waste is recovered and does not end up in the Mediterranean Sea.

Together we can make it happen.
Together we can #KeepSeaBlue.
