Wasted Rum - a bottle cap made from ocean plastic

Wasted Rum is the first rum brand which is on course for a cleaner ocean. Together with Jut een Product they’ve developed a beautiful bottle cap made from ocean plastic. Our challenge was to design the next generation of this cap, same beautiful marble effect, made from ocean plastic but made in such a way that it can be produced in a commercially viable way.

We started by sourcing different ocean plastics, examining and testing them to see which of these different plastics can be transformed into a bottle cap. Next to that we analysed and tested several production processes so we could get the unique marble effect of the cap.

We’re proud to say that we’ve developed a beautiful bottle cap made from ocean plastic, which can be produced for a fraction of the initial price.
