The Oceanic Standard

The Oceanic Standard (TOS) is a set of free, industry-specific guides for adopting sustainable operating practices that meet both business and environmental needs. TOS consists of various research-backed editions designed to support shifts in operational infrastructure, while promoting best practices for responsible consumption. TOS demonstrates that b2c and b2b change is possible, and is a resource for political action and reform.

Plastic Free Edition

TOS: Plastic-Free Hospitality Edition provides businesses with the tools to eliminate single-use plastics from their operations and to implement responsible waste management practices. It connects businesses directly to TOS-approved vendors for cost-effective alternatives to products that threaten our planet, and offers buying deals wherever possible.
