The ocean plastics crisis has been set back years by COVID-19. SoulBuffalo and the Ocean Plastics Leadership Network (OPLN) are committed to leveraging our combined resources to slow the devastation and accelerate many of our action plans. This COVID-19 Ocean Plastics Crisis Hub has been created to share data, learn what’s working and invest in effective solutions. And we cannot waste any time. 

Our monthly online convenings provide exclusive access to the industry’s latest challenges and solutions, and what is being planned for the future.

30% More Waste Worldwide

The pandemic is having a massive impact on our oceans. Between an influx of disposable masks and gloves into the supply chain, a return to single use plastics and the record low costs of virgin plastic, the ocean plastics crisis has escalated dramatically since the onset of COVID-19.
