Parley sees plastic as a design failure. To help combat marine plastic pollution, the organization created Ocean Plastic® – a premium material made from upcycled marine plastic waste intercepted on beaches, coastlines and the open ocean.

To date, over 120,000 volunteers have taken part in beach clean-up activities organised by Parley, and Parley plans to operate in every country with a coastline by 2024.

Parley founder Cyrill Gutsch is a UBS Global Visionary – our program to help leading social entrepreneurs with business support, marketing and networking opportunities.
