Bloem Ocean Series planters

Every year, eight million tons of plastic waste are deposited into our oceans. The innovative folks at Bloem wanted to make a difference in our world and figured out a way to create beautiful products that plastic out of our waters. Their Ocean Series turns ocean plastics and post-consumer recycled goods into vibrant, durable flowerpots!

Out of the Ocean and into Your Home

Here's how plastic ocean pollutants become planters:

Plastic in Reef

Step One: Ocean Cleanup

Marine plastic is collected from coastal areas

Plastic Bottles

Step Two: Collect & Sort

The plastic is sorted and used to create resin

Recycling Conveyor

Step Three: Regrind

It is then ground down, which prepares it for processing

Plastic Pellets

Step Four: Pellitize

Then, it's blended with post-consumer recyclables to create a stable resin


Step Five: Make Planters

The ocean plastic resin is shipped to Bloem and manufactured to create quality planters!
