We work with collectors in vulnerable coastal communities to clear rivers and waterways, and stop plastic entering the ocean.
Spiritgirl, is a sustainable activewear brand based in Cape Town. We strive to produce high-quality apparel with as little impact on the environment as possible. Our nature-inspired designs and marketing aim to raise awareness about the damage single-use plastics do to our oceans.

Spiritgirl is funding plastic collection across Ocean Co.'s partner collection network, supporting projects that create the most impact for communities across the globe.
Collectors exchange plastic for money and get access to social resources such as healthcare, education and financial support.
The collected plastic is recycled, upcycled or co-processed through a fully traceable system. We have a zero waste to landfill policy.
Ocean Co. is a platform that empowers brands and individuals to do good.
We are a global network of change-makers working together to turn the tide on ocean-bound plastic and improve livelihoods in coastal communities across the globe.
Our partnership with Plastic Bank has enabled us to fund impact across projects in Indonesia, Brazil, Egypt and the Philippines, providing a secure income for collectors while creating social benefits.
Plastics For Change takes a grassroots approach to waste management, leveraging community actions to drive systemic change and formalise processes that benefit local workers.
Incentivising collection of low-value plastics like PET, rePurpose creates value in discarded plastic waste. In 2022, rePurpose opened sites in Ghana and Kenya allowing us to extend the reach of our impact in areas that need it most.
