An award winning material



#tide has developed a mechanical solution to regenerate the molecules of damaged ocean-bound plastic waste and transforms these into a premium raw material. 



Besides the material, #tide is creating a big impact by collecting and upcycling ocean-bound plastic – not only for the environment but also for the local communities by creating jobs. For these achievements – including its material passports and its traceability on a blockchain – #tide has been awarded multiple times in its first 4 years. 

#tide - the label of trust for ocean-bound plastics


In today's world, transparency is key. The #tide ocean material® can seamlessly be tracked along the entire supply chain with blockchain technology. The material is tracked at every single step from the collection to the finished raw material. All processing steps are documented, including data such as dates, volumes, photos and geodata. Customers can even go beyond tracking the resin and include traceability for all materials to be able to provide full transparency to their end user via QR-code directly on the end application.

A business with an impact

80% of the plastics in the ocean come from land-based activities. Through limited resources for trash disposal or improper collection, littering or heavy rains which provoke landslides, plastic can be carried into streams, rivers and eventually to the ocean. Because it is very challenging to retrieve plastic from the ocean once it has entered it, the better strategy is to prevent plastic waste from entering open waters in the first place.


True sustainability means everyone is benefitting: The environment, the workers, the brands and the consumers.


#tide works closely with local fishermen and communities to collect waste from the beaches. "Collecting ocean-bound plastic for sourcing starting materials is an environmentally meaningful activity", as stated by Swiss environmental consultant Carbotech.
