World Oceans Day

Celebrate World Oceans Day with Love Beauty and Planet

What is World Oceans Day?

World Oceans Day is celebrated on June 8th each year and inspires and connects people worldwide to protect and restore the ocean-an amazing resource that we all depend on. This movement initially began in 2002 and since then, many organizations around the world have collaboratively worked in partnership from all sectors to help rally the world and continue to grow engagement and action for our shared ocean throughout the year.

This World Oceans Day, Love Beauty and Planet has decided to join the movement by launching a new and exclusive beauty and personal care line of products packaged in bottles made from ocean-bound plastic. 

Oceans Edition Line

What is “Ocean-Bound Plastic”?

While ocean plastic refers to plastic waste found in the ocean itself, ocean-bound plastic refers to plastic waste along coastlines, beaches, and waterways that will likely end up in the oceans. Love Beauty and Planet sourced ocean-bound plastic collected within 15 km of the coastline to create the bottles for this exclusive line of products.

Is the packaging of products within the Oceans Edition line made from recycled ocean-bound plastic?

Yes! All of the bottles within the Oceans Edition is made from 100% ocean-bound, PCR plastic. The Oceans Edition will be available at most mass retailers from 2020.

Why is there ocean-bound plastic in the first place? Don’t most countries offer recycling programs?

Recyclability depends greatly on individual municipalities and therefore varies across the country. Recycling is an example of where more collaboration is needed amongst many parties to create a sustainable future. Governments, NGOs and companies need to collaborate to build infrastructure and to promote waste recycling and recovery. Recycling ocean-bound plastic is one of the ways we are working with partners to continue to innovate on this issue and help lessen our overall environmental footprint for a better planet.
