Change is needed.

Our oceans desperately need our help. Over 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enters our oceans every year and 80% of this comes from the land.

If we continue to do nothing to stop it, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.

Made from waste.

With every roll of the 50% Ocean Bound Plastic Recycled Bags we make, we stop the equivalent of 2 x 2L plastic milk bottles worth of plastic waste from flowing into our oceans. With your help imagine the impact we could make.

Prevention is part of the cure.

In partnership with Oceanworks®, GLAD is committed to help stop the flow of ocean bound plastic waste from entering our precious oceans, aiding in the reduction of waterway pollution and helping make seas safer for marine life.

Oceanworks® partners with local entrepreneurs to collect ocean-bound plastic waste in developing countries that lack waste management infrastructure. The extracted plastic waste is recycled into pellets and used to make our Ocean Bound Recycled Kitchen Tidy Bags.

Oceanworks® aims to turn off the tap on ocean plastic and improve lives in collector communities by boosting incomes and incentivising the permanent removal of plastic waste from the local environment.

The ocean is everyone's responsibility, so join us in our journey and help change the outcome on waste.
