The MBRC Mission: No more plastic waste in our oceans. MBRC believes it's time for a change! Embrace the ocean.
MBRC pull plastics from the sea, like fishing nets and PET bottles and make their gear using recycled yarns manufactured in the Netherlands. Every purchase helps fund their work cleaning coastlines around the world.
15% of every MBRC product purchased funds their nonprofit fight against ocean plastics.
Over 8 million tonnes of plastic enter the ocean every year! Our Oceans are drowning in plastic waste. If we do not act now, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050
It’s time to change the way we think and act. It’s time to stop unnecessary waste. It’s time to embrace a healthier and sustainable future.
“Every minute, the equivalent of one full garbage truck of plastic trash is dumped in the sea. That is 1440 trucks per 24 hours and 8 BILLION kilos per year.” A disaster for all life, including ours.
Time to change. Time for awareness. Time for cleaner oceans.
At “MBRC the ocean” making a contribution is in the heart of the brand.
Be part of the movement. Be part of the solution. Wear your MBRC with pride.
The ocean is a vast, beautiful and deeply interconnected treasure. In short, it’s huge, and the perfect out-of-sight dumping ground for the things we no longer want (fact: 80% of the plastics entering the ocean comes from landfills).
Over 8 million tonnes of plastic waste enters our oceans each year. And with more plastic produced in the last decade than in the entire 20th century, if we don’t act now there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050.
That’s where MBRC comes in.
In 2018, after seeing this world of forgotten waste littering once-pristine beaches on their travels, friends Sven Jacobi and Michiel Reinoud were inspired to create MBRC – a company that could disrupt how companies operate, and serve a greater purpose.
For MBRC, that greater good is to be a voice for the oceans.
As a 100% nonprofit organisation, MBRC Foundation does this by organizing voluntary beach cleanups around the globe, empowering local communities to clean their ocean fronts (and make a living from it, too), partnering with like-minded ambassadors to spread the word, and offering courses that teach the next gen to care for the oceans as much as we do.
