Latest new product serves as guiding light in environmentalism by protecting world’s oceans
11th January 2021: Chipolo, the award-winning item finder company today announces it will be donating $10,000 to non-profit organisation Oceanic Global, which supports ocean clean-up efforts, after the success of the Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition. Customers can feel comfort in knowing that their purchase of the Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition has not only cleaned up our shores, as it’s made from recovered ocean plastic waste, but it has also allowed Chipolo to donate $1 to the charity for every unit sold.
Chipolo is diving into combating ocean pollution by offering the Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition – the first sustainable Bluetooth item finder on the market. The latest edition to the Chipolo family aims to act on the projected tripling of plastic waste flowing into our oceans, which is expected to reach a rate of 29 million metric tons per year by 2040 – further causing harm to our climate, ecosystems and marine life.
With the help of Oceanworks.co, Chipolo has created the limited Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition by using recyclable materials recovered from our oceans including fishing nets, trawls and ropes floating in the sea, collected in the shallow areas and turned to pellets to create the polypropylene plastic encasing the Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition item finder. Not only is the product itself sustainable, but the packaging it arrives in is worth mentioning. Made entirely from recyclable cardboard, the Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition is secured in packaging which is 100% plastic-free and vegan.
Lea d’Auriol Founder & Executive Director of Oceanic Global said: “We are thrilled to work with Chipolo as the charity partner to their One Ocean Edition. Aligning with brands and products that think creatively about the plastic crisis and directly addressing it is core to our work. We are grateful for the $10,000 donation from Chipolo’s One Ocean Edition, that will fund our ocean conservation efforts and help keep our ocean healthy.”
This Bluetooth item-finder provides a hassle and carefree solution to the misplacing of everyday essentials. The sleek lightweight and water-resistant design allows it to be easily attached to everything and anything. The Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition offers all advanced features of the Chipolo ONE for free with no subscriptions, unlike other trackers on the market.

The popularity early on with the Chipolo ONE Ocean Edition shines a light on what the industry can do to step up, and we are happy to be leading the charge.”
