HP Joins Dell in Ocean Plastics Consortium

HP and Ikea joins Dell’s consortium to turn ocean-bound plastic trash into products. 

Dell became the first company to use ocean plastic in its products in 2016. They have a partnership with charity Lonely Whale Foundation.

The consortium of 10 firms aims to turn 1.2 billion single-use plastic water bottles into products and packaging by 2025.

Dell set up NextWave Plastics to create a global network of supply chains for ocean-bound plastic.

It’s become increasingly clear that the solution to marine plastic pollution requires bold innovation and open collaboration. No company can solve this issue alone.

NextWave sources ocean-bound plastic from the Philippines, Indonesia, Chile, Cameroon and Denmark, and is aiming to add India, Taiwan and Thailand to its sourcing locations by 2025.
