Why Buoy Bottle
The world is drowning in plastic! An estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic enter the oceans every year. Five giant plastic islands are floating in our oceans with a devastating impact on all life-forms. Single-use beverage-containers represent 33% of all ocean litter.
Existing reusable products are part of the problem!
With a sale of 105 Million reusable water bottles per year (and growing), in the USA alone, an estimated 30 Million of those bottles go into landfill every year!
None of those bottles will ever be recycled:
>> Steel bottles are not crushable and therefore not recycled in the regular curbside recycling stream
>> Most plastic bottles are made with plastic that is not recyclable
>> Product misconception and lack of waste-management over the last decades are responsible for the alarming situation.
Buoy replaces single-use products made from virgin materials with FDA-certified, food-grade plastic, BPA-free reusable products made out of recycled ocean-bound-plastic in a circular economy.
Intercepted before it (re-)enters the ocean, Ocean-bound plastic is made from recycled plastic recovered from coastal regions, communities, rivers and beaches that lack proper waste management.
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: Product is developed, thoroughly tested, and ready for production.
PRE-ORDERS: Company will start collecting pre-orders on Kickstarter on September 29th, with expected shipment date of Early 2021.
Buoy, the creator of the Buoy Water Bottle, is a Los Angeles-based company – founded by celebrity photographer, avid diver and environmentalist Rene Hallen, co-founded by award-winning designer Pascal Schaller and veteran Biotech operations and business executive Adrian Colesberry – that aims to make a positive impact on the world by creating modern design and highly functional products made of recycled material for a circular economy.
