The Oceanic Standard is designed to be an easy step-by-step guide for restaurants, event venues, hotels, bars, nightlife venues and more to adopt sustainable practices that empower consumers to make conscious choices while meeting both business and environmental needs.

Oceanic Global focuses on engaging new audiences in environmentalism. We work with a dynamic roster of businesses, nonprofits, scientists, and advisors to provide easy methods for implementing conservation in daily life. Through our work in creating educational events and immersive experiences surrounding ocean conservation, we identified an opportunity to create scalable change in the hospitality industry – where materials that threaten our environment, such as single-use plastics, are habitual.
