Today we would like to take you guys to know about packaging made from OBP plastic or Ocean Bound Plastic, which is plastic packaging made from plastic that is left overgrown 50 kilometers along the shoreline of seas and oceans in Asia. These plastics are at high risk of being washed into the sea and causing marine pollution. Reusing these plastics as raw materials for producing packaging is one way to reduce the amount of plastic waste and help preserve the marine environment at the same time.

Origin of the name “Ocean Bound Plastic”

The term “Ocean Bound” refers to plastic that is discarded or left within 50 kilometers of coastal areas connecting seas and oceans. These plastics are at high risk of eventually being washed into the sea. This may cause pollution and severely affect the marine ecosystem.

Situation of plastic waste in Asia’s oceans

Asia is the largest source of plastic waste in the world’s oceans. It accounts for up to 60 percent of plastic waste that enters the ocean.

Examples of damage from plastic waste in the ocean include many marine animals ingesting it without knowing. This can lead to injury and death.
