We’re very proud to announce the launch of The Ocean Bottle on Indiegogo today. K8 has been working together with UK based Ocean Bottle team for about a year to develop world’s most needed reusable bottle.
The Ocean Bottle empowers individuals to turn the tap off ocean plastic, by funding plastic collectors and developing long-term recycling infrastructure at the top sources of ocean plastic around the world. Purchasing just one Ocean Bottle funds the collection of 11kgs of plastic – which equates to a staggering 1000 plastic bottles. This is 25x the impact level previously seen by one product.
The Ocean Bottle’s impact goal is to fund collection equivalent to 3 billion ocean-bound plastic bottles every year by 2025.
K8 has been responsible for design and development of the bottle and has been the main investor in the project. The Ocean Bottle is now a part of Katapult Ocean, a Norwegian entrepreneur accelerator program focusing on ocean innovation. We can’t wait to se the response of the crowdfunding campaign and start production.
