“The OCEANTEE pioneering golf cap range has been produced by Waste2Wear using recycled ocean plastic. This amazing company addresses two issues – the staggering amount of plastic waste that is never recycled, and the world’s desire to own new clothes. They believe, as do we, that waste is only waste when we don’t do anything with it. Everyday tons of plastic waste is thrown away. However, when we collect it and handle it correctly, this plastic can actually be a viable, eco-friendly and sustainable resource. The Ocean Tee caps are made from 3 recycled plastic bottles each. A simple QR code on each cap with a unique blockchain technology, allows the owner to follow the journey of the plastic from the ocean to the top of your head in the case of our ocean tee golf caps!”
-Ed Sandison, Founder OCEANTEE
Oceantee is striving to push sustainability to the forefront of the golf industry by providing premium quality, sustainable golf products to golfers, clubs, owners and organizations across the world.
Oceantee chooses materials, processes and manufacturers that make as little impact on the environment as possible. From sourcing responsibly to designing shipping and packaging strategies, Oceantee are constantly striving to reduce the global footprint of the business.
The pioneering cap range has been produced using recycled ocean plastic – exactly three bottles per cap, in fact – but that’s not the innovation that’s going to change the way we think about recycled waste. It’s a simple QR code.
Available in classic and flat brim designs, the Pacific Caps look incredible with some featuring contrast wave accents, and others with bold patterns incorporating the Oceantee logo. Look a little closer and you’ll discover a unique technology that allows the owner to see for themselves the difference they are making to the world as a result of their purchase.
In the back of each cap is a QR code that when scanned allows the wearer to see exactly where in the ocean the plastic waste used to manufacture the cap was collected from. You can then follow its journey from the ocean to the palm of your hand!
All of this is made by us, Waste2Wear whose Ocean Plastic Project collects ocean plastics from beaches and shorelines around the world. The plastic bottles are shipped to a recycling plant where they’re washed to remove the labels and then dried. The clean bottles are shredded and washed again, before the flakes are moulded into small pellets. The pellets are then melted and moulded before being extruded into yarn.
