Welcome to OceanClear online store UK. Launched in October 2018, initially offering a collection of plastic-free vegan bathroom products, and reusable kitchen products made by a selection of UK independent makers.
We believe that being active in the outdoors is the best way to stay connected to our natural environment, and to remind us that we need to take action daily to protect it. Our more recent focus therefore has been on products promoting travel, adventure and sustainability, appealing to those in pursuit of an active lifestyle.
Globally, the issue of plastic pollution has dominated the media during recent years, and yet still the production of single-use plastic is on the rise. Approximately 300 million tonnes of plastic is produced each year, and around half of that is 'single-use'. How did we become a 'Throw away' society and what can be done to turn it around? As consumers we have the power to make a difference everyday, by choosing reusable products, with less waste, and made from recycled or natural materials.
With such a huge love for the outdoors it was only natural that we wanted to take steps to reduce our own waste, and to help others too. We have joined organised beach cleans in the north west of England, and carried out regular mini cleans on the banks of our local river. In 2019 we successfully organised a cleanup in our home town of Clitheroe on behalf of the Surfers Against Sewage : Big Spring Clean - Summit to Sea.
In 2019 we also ran a drop-off location for a number of TerraCycle UK's recycling programmes. Due to other commitments our recycling point is now closed, however as volunteers we collected over 500kg of recycling and raised money for selected charities through our involvement with the scheme. You can also follow our progress on the Refill scheme here. This fantastic initiative from City to Sea makes free tap water refills easily available to everyone, just remember to always carry your refillable water bottle!
