RED BANK, N.J.—LowTides Ocean Products introduced its eco-friendly beach chair. Lightweight, durable, and easy to fold, LowTides OP beach chairs are available in eight stylish designs for adults and four fun ones for kids. The Kickstarter campaign, which launches with a funding goal of $30,000, features limited Early Bird Specials of $49 (kids chairs) and $69 (adult chairs), as well as several other rewards for backers.
LowTides OP beach chairs incorporate 2.5lbs of upcycled ocean bound plastic from at risk coastal areas in the products design. Ocean bound plastic is different from other recycled plastic. LowTides OP’s supply chain sources single use plastic from target areas around the globe, which are called “At-Risk Zones.” These coastal areas lack professional collection efforts to recycle, and as a result, there is a high likelihood that the plastic waste in these zones will enter landfills, the environment and even the world’s oceans.

Twelve Options Available
Eight colorful choices for adults include: “Classic Charcoal,” “Classic White,” “Great White Blue,” “Island Coral,” “Sea Turtle Fuchsia,” “Shark Navy,” “Summertime Pink” and “Surfer Grey.” For kids: “Mermaid Mint,” “Crab Teal,” “Shark Navy” and “Summertime Pink.”
“We work with trusted suppliers to source ocean-bound plastic from resort communities, beaches, rivers, riverbeds and environments near coastlines that ultimately end up in our oceans,” said Brenton Hutchinson, Founder, LowTides OP. “These suppliers have the same goal as us—stopping ocean pollution before it starts. The collected ocean plastics are broken down into resins that we then turn into stylish and comfortable beach chairs.”
LowTides OP beach chairs also include modern design features such as backpack straps, dual cup holders, dual armrest smartphone slots, and a towel bar incorporated into the back of the beach chair that provides a durable solution to dry a towel.
