Frederic Forest x Ocean Bottle

Ocean Bottle is a long-term solution to the ocean plastic crisis that everyone can be a part of. We’re working to give plastic a value so it is not discarded and therefore preventing the ocean from being choked with waste. By giving plastic a value in Haiti, Philippines, Indonesia and Brazil we engage tens of thousands of people in coastal communities to become plastic collectors and have the option of earning a living wage while keeping the environment clean

Each Ocean Bottle directly funds the equivalent of 1000 ocean-bound plastic bottles (11.4kg)

Each Ocean Bottle directly funds the equivalent of 1000 ocean-bound plastic bottles (11.4kg) in impoverished coastal communities where there is little or no waste management and plastic pollution is worst. Plastic collectors can exchange plastic waste for money or credit via blockchain technology to spend on tuition, tech goods, health care and micro-finance.

Designed in Norway, made from stainless steel and ocean-bound plastic, Ocean Bottle has been designed to be minimalistic, beautiful and convenient without compromises, as some the key features suggest: insulation for hot/cold beverages, a large and small opening for easy cleaning and filling, dishwasher safe, a carry loop, compact and modular for future accessories.

The collaboration between Frédéric Forest and Ocean Bottle came to be following their love for nature.

The collaboration between Frédéric Forest and Ocean Bottle came to be following their love for nature. One drives his inspirations from it to draw subtle lines which naturally invite the viewer’s mind to complete the picture. The latter lives to connect it with individuals, and rightfully place it back at the centre of their lives, through a bottle designed with the same minimalistic attention.

From this connection they crafted a special piece to portray this union. Like the symbiosis of both of these worlds, two hands join together to form a perfectly reciprocal shape. Two hands which also merge to form an infinity loop and embody perennial circularity. Another reminder of their joint mission, a helping hand can be imagined reaching out to support another being, in a time when, more than ever, support, love and compassion should prevail.
