Recovered Seaside Plastic Certification

– Building a circular and sustainable future –

About the certification

#RecoveredSeasidePlastic uses an innovative certification model, powered by Oracle Blockchain Technology, which involves a multi-step monitoring process whereby the source material can be followed through a secure digital pathway ensuring end-to-end recycled product transparency and traceability. 

It is designed to encourage effective plastic waste collection, sustainable reuse and prevent Mediterranean Sea pollution.

Certification types

With this ambitious certification model we aim to certify:

Recycled materials recovered from at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas
providing digital proof of origin through our blockchain platform 
 
Collectors, Recyclers, Manufacturers
through advanced auditing and monitoring techniques 
 
The certification model is open to all parties interested in registering and participating. Interested parties  must satisfy several criteria before they can be considered a certified supplier of #RecoveredSeasidePlastic material.
Certification concept

The #RecoveredSeasidePlastic certification model is based on the concept of complete transparency and shared responsibility across the plastics supply chain and collaboration is at the heart of it.

Companies are encouraged to adopt a circular approach, invest in and reward more sustainable practices, production and materials and pay a premium price for the #RecoveredSeasidePlastic recycled material.

When a company uses #RecoveredSeasidePlastic certified recycled materials it’s a small step towards a plastic-free Mediterranean Sea. 

Certification benefits

The benefits of the #RecoveredSeasidePlastic blockchain platform and certification model can serve all parts of the supply chain – form collectors to end consumers.

We give the opportunity to certified partners (Collectors, Recyclers, Suppliers and Brand Owners) to have access to our #RecoveredSeasidePlastic blockchain platform and create digital certificates at every step of the journey increasing the recycled material's value and providing the highest level of traceability possible to their customers (B2B or B2C).

The value of the certification model is that it records the journey of plastic waste, step-by-step, to become a finished product while safeguarding privacy and allowing for transparency.

It allows registered partners to transparently record and trace the certified #RecoveredSeasidePlastic recycled raw materials all the way back to the point of origin (from the pickers who collected the plastic up to the final product, and all steps in between), by means of digital certificates. The point of origin is the specific geo-targeted Mediterranean coastal area where plastic waste is collected from.

Certification badge

The #RecoveredSeasidePlastic badge is recognised by businesses and consumers as a symbol of circular and positive impact practices.

It signals that the recycled plastic used in the product or packaging comes from plastic waste recovered from at-risk Mediterranean coastal areas and saved from ending up in the sea.

By introducing the certification badge on their product packaging, brands have the opportunity to provide their customers with complete transparency and accuracy about a product’s journey to the stores and reveal its positive environmental impact.

Collectors, Recyclers, Manufacturers and Brand Owners that meet our certification requirements can use and proudly display the badge, showcasing their circular credentials and strengthening their brand’s reputation.

Here’s how brands can display the #RecoveredSeasidePlastic badge:

  • Display the badge on products and packaging (retail packaging, product containers, product labels, shelf tags, bags, etc.)
  • Use the badge in promotional materials (ads, newsletters, posters, in-store pop, etc.)
