Fighting ocean plastic together with Parley for the Ocean
We embraced the Parley AIR Strategy (Avoid, Intercept, Redesign) to help drive change and boost efforts that raise awareness and intercept plastic waste in coastal communities. For every bottle you drink with REBO, you will directly support Parley’s interception operations to make a difference and drive change for our oceans.
Parley, our award-winning partner, is a global network that raises awareness for the beauty and fragility of the oceans and collaborates on projects that can end their destruction. In addition to cleanups, plastic waste interception and recycling programs, Parley engages in initiatives to educate and empower communities to participate in creating change.
Parley is leading a material revolution introducing Parley Ocean Plastic®: a range of premium materials created from up-cycled plastic waste intercepted by Parley from remote islands, shorelines, waters and in coastal communities preventing it from polluting the oceans. This revolutionary material will soon be integrated into REBO (stay tuned!).
Gold Standard certifies REBO's carbon credits so we can fund ocean clean-ups
A world-renowned organization, Gold Standard certifies carbon credits and impact projects. It is the reference certification body ensuring that carbon offsetting is done in the right way, getting the funding to go as far as it can. Its process is also used to certify REBO’s impact and verify our outcomes.
Practically speaking, Gold Standard reconciles data collected by our hydration trackers with the number of PACC (Plastic Avoidance and Collection Credits), so REBO can issue and sell on them on the free market. This is at the heart of how REBO works. Our partnership with Gold Standard is what allows us to:
- Continually finance the collection of plastic waste, and
- Measure our impact on ocean plastics
Project Rescue Ocean: Driving awareness and education to end plastic waste
Started as a social network, now with 5 years and 30,000 followers, Project Rescue Ocean is an environmental association aimed at raising awareness of our coastal environments: seas, rivers and oceans.
Project Rescue Ocean is invaluable to REBO because they engage the general public-- especially young people-- to become part of the ocean-plastic solution. REBO needs these passionate agents to drive change
Project Rescue Ocean:
- Raises awareness in education centers ranging from primary schools to universities (2,000+ students graduated as “ocean rescuers”)
- Organizes volunteer ocean clean-up efforts, having collected 55 tons of global in 2019 alone
- Conducts deeper dives into unusual ocean waste to understand causes, ecological impact and solutions
A portion of REBO proceeds is directed to fund Project Rescue Ocean.Join a Project Rescue Ocean movement near you
