Since its 2017 launch, UK-based organization Orca Sound Project (OSP) has been actively partnering with corporate clients to raise awareness for the global plastic waste crisis, namely ocean pollution. At Glastonbury, for example, OSP created a stage built entirely from recycled ocean plastic that volunteers had collected in England. Other partners include Miami Music Week, Ultra Music Festival and Amsterdam Dance Event

Now, OSP is calling attention to Ibiza, dance music's island hub, where there are only five years left until the island's landfills run out of room, according to the organization. A partnership with jewelry brand Hannah Warner has culminated in a capsule collection sourced entirely from plastic collected from Ibiza's beaches. With 20% of proceeds committed to ongoing beach cleanup activities in Ibiza, the line will have a direct role in remedying the massive amount of waste left behind by EDM show attendees every year. 

"The hW x Orca Sound Project collection shows our commitment in supporting the preservation of our oceans and. in this case. particularly Ibiza, inspiring conscious living and tourism on the island," organization founder Jolyon Klean and OSP partner Posey Collins told EDM.com. "Each piece is totally unique and has a deep meaning that represents positive action and awareness of the self and your surroundings."

An additional Ibiza-based initiative is a government-proposed art installation piece slated for display at Ibiza Airport. It will be made entirely from plastic collected on the island and built with partner Casita Verde, a local ecology center.
