First published over ten years ago, Ian Churchill’s Marineman returns to help spread the word about Prevented Ocean Plastic and encourage people to #ChooseRecycled as part of this year’s UN World Oceans Day.
With the theme of ‘Collective Action for the Ocean’, Marineman and his team are shown trying to stop the dreaded plastic monster before it reaches the sea in the style of a classic comic book cover. Prevented Ocean Plastic is responsible for stopping over 1,000 tons of plastic reaching the ocean every month – ensuring that it can be effectively and affordably recycled into new plastic for fresh usage.
Prevented Ocean Plastic is supplied by Bantam Materials, and is a high quality, certified and award-winning recycled plastic material that has been collected from coastal areas at risk of ocean plastic pollution. Used by supermarkets and brands around the world – including original adopters Lidl GB and Groupe Guillin – it meets regulatory health and safety standards, and can be identified on-pack by its distinctive triangular logo.
Marineman fans, and those who share his concerns about the impact of ocean plastic, are encouraged to share this new image and sign the pledge to #ChooseRecycled on this UN World Oceans Day (Wednesday 8 June). You can sign up and find out more.
