Fighting plastic pollution before it enters our oceans

 

SeaHive helps prevent plastic waste from entering our oceans through design, technology, and the most powerful tool–awareness.

We focus on reducing the ubiquity of environmentally harmful plastic packaging by creating change in both industry practices and consumer acceptance.


How?

We consult brands to eliminate plastic from their product packaging and then ensure those changes serve as a valuable and educational marketing exposure. With change coming from both directions we all improve our chances of reversing the dire trends before it’s too late for our oceans.

The Problem

Single-use plastics products such as bottles, shopping bags, and product packaging have become an accepted part of most aspects of modern life. The lightweight materials easily escape into the environment whether they were properly disposed of or not making them the most common form of plastic pollution, by far.

  • Single-use plastics account for about 50% of all plastic we use but they’re the majority of the plastics found floating in our seas

  • 68% of global plastic waste is mismanaged, increasing its chances of entering our waterways

  • Single waterways carry as much as 4.2 metric tons of plastic waste to the sea per day

  • An estimated 5 -12 million metric tons of plastic waste enters our oceans annually

The only truly effective way to keep these plastics out of the environment is to reduce their usage–enter SeaHive.
