About #tide


Based in Basel, Switzerland, #tide® is committed to building a global supply chain for premium second-life raw materials made from ocean-bound plastic waste. Through a mechanical process, that does not employ chemicals, they are able to transform ocean-bound plastic waste into yarns. 


#tide® works closely with local communities, by organising beach clean-ups and by educating them to collect the plastic before it reaches the ocean, preventing waste dispersion, and safeguarding the marine biodiversity and ecosystem.

Moreover, #tide® is devoted to improving these communities' quality of life by offering employment opportunities with fair wages, providing social security, and building resilient waste management infrastructures.
