In the February edition of Set in Stone®, we’re brimming with excitement about the new bottles being made with Made From Stone, learning about the impact of large-scale sporting events on the planet, and prepping for an appearance at NPE 2024 in Orlando!


How do large-scale events like the Super Bowl, Paris Summer games, and the World Cup score on Sustainability?

Diveinto Episode 9 of Mastering Sustainability to find out! In this episode, we welcome Brad Vogel from the Green Sports Alliance, an organization that inspires professional sports leagues and their governing bodies, colleges, teams, venues, partners, and millions of fans to embrace sustainable practices. In this episode, Brad takes us onto the sidelines to understand the environmental impact of live sporting events, discusses the ways that teams and venues around the world are working to improve, and the role that the fans play in making sustainable shifts.

Ready to be blown away by more sustainable blow-molded bottles?

Believe it or not…bottles of all shapes and sizes can now be Made From Stone without an increase in unit weight, performance, properties or environmental impact!

Better still: bottles Made From Stone not only boast significant reductions in overall plastic content and corresponding CO2 emissions but importantly, can be made at a unit price equal to or lower than the cost you’re paying for your current 100% virgin resins.

Created from locally soured stone, bottles are already being manufactured in Thailand, Turkey, Spain, the United States, Colombia, Ecuador and Brazil. Take a bold step toward sustainable bottles today.

Imagine the impact we could have if every country around the world followed the same set of guidelines for the way we make, use and dispose of plastic…

Well, that’s what we’re working toward! Earlier this month, Okeanos joined our colleagues Coca-Cola, Mars, Amcor, Nestle, Unilever, Essity, Kimberly-Clark, Mondelez, Henkel, and more in Brussels for a meeting of the Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty, in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and WWF. The focus was on preparing for INC-4, the fourth session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee, addressing global plastic pollution in Ottawa from April 23 to 29, 2024.

During the meeting, the Coalition discussed potential INC-4 outcomes, strategies for engaging with policymakers, and drafted proposals on the revised treaty text. Additionally, since its formation, the Coalition has taken a proactive approach by publishing policy briefings on various topics. These briefings aim to support the technical discussions that decision-makers will have during the Global Plastic Treaty negotiations. By addressing these key areas, the Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty underscores its commitment to influencing positive change on a global scale, equipped with comprehensive policy resources to guide the upcoming negotiations.

Okeanos believes it is important for us to be part of the Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty. Collaborating with industry leaders allows us to contribute our expertise, resources, and advocacy efforts to shape impactful policies and strategies, with the goal of fostering a collective industry response to the global plastic pollution crisis. Together with like-minded organizations, we work towards a more sustainable future, demonstrating our dedication to responsible practices and environmental stewardship on a global scale.

We are excited to announce that Okeanos has joined the Asociación Nacional de Industrias del Plástico, A.C. (ANIPAC).

ANIPAC is the largest plastic industry association in Mexico, bringing together the entire plastic supply chain, including producers, raw material distributors, recyclers, and transformers. Playing a crucial role in promoting the sustainable development of the plastic industry in Mexico, ANIPAC represents the interests of its members and provides a platform for collaboration and networking.

Through various commissions and specialized groups, the organization also provides a range of resources and support, including technical expertise and guidance on industry practices. As a member of ANIPAC, Okeanos will be part of the Circular Economy and Institutional Relations Commissions and the Raw Materials Section. This collaboration will enable us to stay at the forefront of industry developments and align our strategies with best practices.

In addition to the technical support and networking opportunities provided by ANIPAC, our membership also allows us to participate in shaping the future of the plastic industry in Mexico. We will have the opportunity to contribute to the drafting and review of national technical norms and to engage in lobbying efforts before governmental organizations at national and local levels. This will allow us to advocate for sustainable practices and drive innovation in the industry. By collaborating with its members, we hope to leverage our collective expertise and resources to develop innovative solutions that address plastic pollution and climate change and contribute to a more sustainable future.

This month we’re celebrating Michaela Schwartz, our Sustainability Partnerships Associate. Michaela’s passion for sustainability is driven by her global up bringing, having been exposed to nature’s marvels during her adventures living in Thailand and Hawaii. Read on to learn about what she thinks the most urgent issue facing the planet is, and how we can start to tackle it.

What do you feel you bring to your team from your cultural background, that contributes to achieving objectives?

Growing up and living between southern California and Hawaii, I developed a deep appreciation for the natural environments around me.  Overtime, that evolved into a strong passion for sustainability which now drives my work at Okeanos.

Can you share a “Eureka!” moment when you realized the potential of Made From Stone’s technology?

I was very encouraged to see the positive results of the third-party LCA report that was conducted on products being made with MFS technology last year. To have such a positive impact across five different environmental factors when we have primarily just been focused on two is very exciting.

What’s the most exciting project you’ve worked on at Okeanos, and how did it align with your passion for sustainability?

Developing Okeanos’ first Sustainability Report has been very exciting.  I’ve enjoyed researching best practices and initiatives other companies are taking and adapting them to meet the capabilities and priorities of Okeanos.  I am very excited to see the final version of this report and to continue to grow Okeanos environmental, social and governance efforts.

If you could have a conversation with someone from history about the importance of sustainability, who would it be and why?

I would love to speak with the still-alive Dr. Jane Goodall! Her lifelong dedication to chimpanzee conservation and environmental protection inspires me deeply. I admire her courage in immersing herself in the Tanzanian wildlife at such a young age, and her ability to communicate complex ideas with grace and passion.
