Ocean-bound plastic is defined as plastic that has not yet found its way into the ocean but is classified as "mismanaged waste". That is, plastic that is not being (formally) collected, is not likely to be collected, and is found within 50km of an ocean-bound waterway or coastal area.

Plastic Bank’s Partnership with Nutrabolt

Plastic Bank collaborates with Nutrabolt to stop ocean plastic while improving lives

To achieve the sustainability goal of plastic neutrality, Nutrabolt’s Plastic Bank partnership will support the collection of 1,250,000 kilograms of ocean-bound plastic in 2022 – equal to nearly 63 million plastic bottles. Ocean-bound plastic will be collected in targeted locations around the world with significant plastic waste, and then transformed into reusable plastic material for new products.

Nutrabolt is proud to continue to deliver on its longstanding mantra to Grow and Give Back by working with Plastic Bank. It’s one of many steps in the company’s sustainability strategy, and commitment to become an environmental role model in the active health and wellness space.
