Our oceans are suffering from plastic pollution. Each minute, the equivalent to one truckload of plastic waste ends up in the sea, disrupting its delicate ecosystem.
Ocean-bound plastic is plastic waste from the ocean, coastlines, and uncontrolled landfills. Due to a lack of waste management systems and infrastructures, most of the plastic in coastal regions ends up in the ocean.

Seacliff Beauty in Partnership with #tide
The solution? Upcycling ocean-bound plastic to give single-use waste a second life. As a part of our Sea of Change movement, Seacliff Beauty is proud to partner exclusively with #tide to introduce ocean plastic packaging in the beauty industry.
With the goal of cleaning up the oceans and coastlines, #tide has created a global network. By organizing beach clean-ups, collaborating with social enterprises, and paying fair wages to local communities, #tide is giving plastic waste a value.
