Built with 2.5 lbs of upcycled ocean bound plastic, LowTides beach chair is the most eco-friendly on the planet.
Our beach chairs offer an eco-conscious solution to the plastic problem that plagues our oceans. Stylish and durable, the LowTides design is comfortable, looks great, and makes the ocean a healthier place for future generations.

Our products are built using ocean bound plastic (OBP), which is plastic that is most at risk of entering the ocean if it is not reused, recycled or disposed of properly.
LowTides Ocean Products founder, Brenton Hutchinson, visited one of these “at-risk” collection points outside of Cancun, Mexico. The amount of ocean bound plastic that had accumulated was staggering to say the least.
Did You Know? Shoppers worldwide are using approximately 500 billion single-use plastic bags per year, which is the same as 150 bags a year for every person on earth.
Risks and challenges
LowTides wants to deliver a high quality product for our backers. Potential issues could arise through the approval process for the design of the chair. The timeline could extend to account for new prototypes and manufacturing. In order to streamline any changes, we are working closely with our engineers and manufacturers.
Trade tariffs and political relations with China, where we are currently manufacturing, could create an external obstacle that we cannot control. The LowTides team is working on relationships with other manufacturers to ensure if this issue occurs, we would have another sourcing partner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
