Biodegradable bottles and plastic-free microbeads: The 10 innovations backed by Sky Ocean Ventures

Sky’s Ocean Ventures arm has selected 10 innovations – all designed to combat marine plastics pollution – to receive a share of a £6m impact investment fund.

The funding pot is being jointly contributed to by Sky and the Government’s Innovate UK arm

In March 2018, Sky announced a £25m “anchor commitment” and the launch of Sky Ocean Ventures – an impact investment fund aiming to foster innovation by investing in entrepreneurs and start-ups that showcase scalable solutions to the 80-120 million tonnes of plastics believed to be seeping into oceans annually.

The first business to receive backing through this channel was Skipping Rocks Labs, which has made strides with numerous companies for its “Ooho” 100% naturally biodegradable membranes for liquids.
