OKEANOS BEGAN FROM

TWO FRIENDS
THAT SHARED
A PASSION
FOR THE SEA

FLORENCIO CUÉTARA
MADRID, SPAIN
PHYSICIST, DIVER &
GRANDFATHER.

DR. RUSSELL PETRIE
CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA
ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON,
DIVER & FATHER.

During marine excursions together, the two found themselves swimming, diving and sailing among plastic bottles, straws, and bags, an issue that was getting worse each time they returned to the ocean. Their solution combined knowledge from their respective fields of medicine and food packaging with the principles of source reduction, and biomimicry. From there, the idea for Made From Stone™ was born.

OUR

VISION

The future of our world depends on the immediate reduction of plastic in our ocean. With innovation, education, and widespread adoption of Made From Stone technology, we can significantly reduce the amount of plastic found in single-use products and on our planet.

OUR

NAME

The ancient greeks believed that the world was connected by one continuous body of water they called Okeanos.

Today, we know that all life depends on the ocean for survival. From the food we consume and the air we breathe, to the medicines that heal us and the climate that sustains our planet.

We are committed to working hand in hand with our partners around the world to further education and develop innovative solutions that will preserve our oceans for future generations.

OUR

TEAM

Change happens when people from all walks of life come together. We find strength in diversity. Our team is made of engineers, chemists, designers, conservationists, geologists, physicians, writers, programmers, and even a nuclear physicist. We speak a multitude of languages, but we are all fluent in the language of ocean conservation.

But, our team doesn’t just include the individuals who work in our offices. It includes you, too! We’ve all been waiting for someone to develop a solution to save our oceans. Now, the solution is in our hands, and together, #WeAreTheSomeone.
