We are proud to introduce ocean-i™, a 100% women owned, South African start-up company that offers designer urban furniture incorporating recycled plastic waste.
ocean-i™ fun and funky urban furniture have been designed with ocean-impact top of mind. Our proudly South African products are manufactured from either 100% recycled plastic or high performance concrete incorporating recycled plastic and cigarette butt ‘sand’. Our designs challenge convention and will transform the way you think about outdoor urban furniture.
A set of 17 goals, which include 169 targets, the sustainable development goals (SDGs) are a universal plan of action for people, planet and prosperity. Adopted by all United Nations Member states in 2015 through the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SDG’s are intended to be tackled as a group rather than individually and are deeply interconnected, i.e. progress on one goal can have a significant impact on progress in meeting others.

Removing plastics from waterways before they reach the ocean is an expensive exercise. To fund cleanup projects, South Africa’s ocean-i™ produces a range of designer chairs made from recycled plastic materials. New technology allows cigarette butts to form part of the sand component in their sturdy concrete mix for their ‘sit’ seats. #EcoFuture
