OWP - See how the concept of helping to save our planet from more than 1.000 tons of plastic in 2018 became a reality, creating a closed loop packaging system from a concept in 2013. 1,400 tons of plastic is equivalent to 50,000,000 500 ml. water bottles collected every year. This is a significant contribution that we hope will scale up as more companies adopt similar ethics.

 

 

Pack Tech has developed, designed and supplied innovative packaging since 1946. Their headquarters are located in Denmark. They also have factories in China, India and Denmark and local offices in Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Spain, Italy, England, China, USA and Australia. So they are well represented globally.

 

The  Ocean Waste Plastic (OWP) story began in 2013, when the concept of taking plastic from the oceans and turning it into new and beautiful packaging was conceived.

 

CIRCULAR SUPPLY CHAIN

 

We want to create a circular supply chain, in which we not only reduce waste, but also provide an alternative source of input. This means that materials constantly flow around a closed loop system, rather than being used once and then discarded. In this way we make more effective use of material, which means lower costs and less waste. A win-win situation – especially for the environment.

 

The idea was easier than the long road to converting Ocean Waste Plastic into new packaging. There were times where OWP almost gave up. The mission was to create awareness about the issue of Ocean Waste Plastic. They wanted to change both the mindset of the plastics industry and the behavior of consumers so that in the future Ocean Waste Plastic will replace virgin materials. It's a vision shared by many, witness the beach cleaning parties all over the world.

 

In May 2015 the first Ocean Waste Plastic was collected, processed and finally turned into new packaging. It was very challenging. Not only to have the plastic collected (in 2015 around Bali only), but also to find processors who could handle it and turn it into new raw material that was possible to inject.

 

In early 2017 the private equity firm, Blue Equity approached OWP, wanting to be part of this adventure to save the planet. Blue Equity enabled OWP to upscale their processes and be the front leader when it comes to recycling plastic collected from the oceans.

 

In the spring of 2018 OWP finally made the break through, introducing the first packaging made from Ocean Waste Plastic to the market. Since then the number of brands implementing OWP into their packaging has been increasing on a weekly basis. They now we proudly clean the oceans by supplying customers with packaging made in OWP.
