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
