Our Environmental, Social & Economic Impacts

😎129 plastic bottle caps - or - 4ft² of fishing nets

That's the equivalent amount of plastic you are helping divert from the marine environment when you purchase one of our Marine Recycled Plastic Surfing Handplanes.

Our Environmental, Social & Economic Impacts

♻️ To date we have recovered, diverted and recycled more than 400,000kgs (400 tonnes) of marine plastic waste.

*This would have been impossible without the help of all the fantastic beach clean community groups, councils, harbours, businesses, fishermen, net makers and charities we work with today.

Meet Rob.

Rob is a multi-award winning innovator renowned for pioneering the global circular economy by developing a solution to the marine plastic litter crisis by creating products from ALDFG and end-of-life fishing gear collected through his company's various recycling schemes, which support the interest of multiple stakeholders from small netmakers, charities, commercial enterprise and governmental departments across the UK.

Aged 3- Rob enjoyed the very first snorkle that enthralled him for life; eventually his passion for the sea, diving and marine protection lead him to set up Fathom's Free- a charity specialising in the underwater recovery of marine plastic and ghost gear using divers.

Quotes
‘We’re incredibly proud of our partnership with Odyssey Innovation. Through its Marine Regeneration Scheme, the plastic which is collected from councils or beach cleans is then given to us and used in our Recycle Base product, contributing to the circular economy. Without this partnership, this plastic could potentially end up being incinerated, releasing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.’

Co-Directors of Oltco,

Quotes
“Programs like Odyssey Innovation’s Paddle for Plastic are extremely valuable for raising awareness about various forms of ocean plastic and giving people a tangible way to contribute to a solution in a fun and engaging way. The circular nature of the program is also extremely valuable as there’s a direct tangible result in the creation of new kayaks from recovered ocean plastic to allow for further expansion of the program and its positive effects. We’re proud to have Odyssey Innovation as a member of the GGGI.”

Quotes
“Rob’s work has been the key factor in fishermen and ports in the SW engaging with the recycling of fishing gear. Resulting in over 60 tonnes of fishing nets being recycled, reducing the amount of fishing gear going to land fill, improving the environmental credentials of the fishing industry in the SW and having a direct impact in reducing plastic in the ocean”.
