As leaders in our field, we understand that plastic is an essential and often unavoidable material throughout the industry. That’s why we want to do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t end up in the wrong place.
We are making it our priority to create products that can either compost naturally or be recycled with the intention that all of these components are disposed of in the correct recycling streams so that they can be repurposed for something else.
It’s a worrying fact that a large amount of the world’s used plastic ends up in oceans despite being recyclable, polluting and damaging marine eco-systems across the globe. So here at Harrison, we are making waves and taking matters into our own hands by actively contributing to the largest clean-up in history.
Every month we support The Ocean Clean-Up, a non-profit organisation, and its mission to sustainably catch and remove plastic from the world’s oceans using passive clean-up technology that moves with the currents before recycling and repurposing these materials into verified ocean plastic.
The organisation has deployed a fleet of clean-up systems and has created a scalable, 100% solar-powered technology that prevents river plastic from getting into oceans, addressing and preventing the key moment misplaced waste becomes a global marine pollutant.
The project’s ultimate goal is to reduce floating ocean plastic by 90% by 2040 and we are thrilled to be a part of it. It has never been so important to acknowledge our environmental impact and do everything we can to make waves by making a change.
