Plastic Oceans International is a US-based non-profit organization working to end plastic pollution and to foster sustainable communities worldwide. They operate with the belief that we can and must act at the local level in order to create change on a global scale.

They pursue their work in four program areas:  Education, Activism, Advocacy and Science. Through projects that are aligned with these programs, and that embrace circular principals, they seek to inspire action that can lead to changes in consumer behavior, corporate practices and public policy. Collectively, these changes will lead to a reduction in plastic pollution, an increase in regenerative communities and a healthier and more equitable planet for all.

To amplify their efforts, and to service as primary tools of education, Plastic Oceans produces a wide variety of films and other digital content.

"We pursue relationships with partners that are walking the talk. Zeal Optics fits this to a tee. Through their mixed use of non-petroleum plastics, recycled plastics and natural materials in their products, they have created a low carbon manufacturing process that we embrace. We look forward to collaborating on making a difference."

- Tod Hardin, COO, Plastic Oceans International
