The Ocean Bucket is a set of playfully designed beach toys, designed to be made from 100% beach waste, they are designed for a lifetime not just one day on the Beach. The set is comprised of an octopus bucket and lid, squid like rake and whale shaped spade.
They are designed for durability with large wall thicknesses and maximum reinforcement. This means they have a higher unit price than current market alternatives but the real story here is that every hire helps fund further clean-ups.
The project has just entered a pilot phase that is running with Plastic Free Torridge. The first “Beach Clean 4 Beach Toys” was held on Sunday 16th May, at Westward Ho! (North Devon).
As a closed loop design solution it aims to educate and involve local communities, engaging the public and encouraging them to see beach waste as a precious resource that can be given new life for everyone’s benefit.
The sets should be available for hire from Summer 2022 starting at Westward Ho! beach with plans to roll out to other loactions in due course.
