Now after years of successfully serving this challenging market segment independently, Halcyon and Santi will join forces to bring even greater value through innovation and service to the dive industry.These are exciting times and the new Santi/Halcyon relationship is on target to make a big impact with this first step in what promises to be a strong partnership for many years.

When asked why Santi and why now, Jarrod said, “The dive industry continues to evolve as does our global passion to explore the far reaches of the underwater world. In order to fulfill our ambitious exploration goals and remain a leader in the innovation of equipment design we decided to build a synergistic relationship with another quality focused dive company. I have known Tomek for many years and was pleased to have him join our team on the now famous Mars Project in Sweden. After just a few conversations it became apparent that Tomek and Santi share my vision for the future of diving and will make ideal partners as we move forward with new products and diving projects around the world.” On the other side of the globe the same question was asked of Tomek, why Halcyon and why now and his answer was quite similar: “Over the last few years, the Santi brand has become a world leader in providing innovative solutions and products to appreciative divers all over the world.We recognize Halcyon equipment as the natural partner on our path towards continued growth and success. Obviously, we also followed all their amazing projects and have enjoyed working with them on recent projects. They are also known to be innovators with excellent quality products so it was only natural that we would be interested to join forces. Santi has achieved great success with the technical diving marketplace and continues to be well respected by many famous divers. Now joining with Halcyon we can expand our brand even further and offer a complete gear setup that we know is the best in the market. We are excited about our new relationship and look forward to working closely together. Look for Halcyon and Santi together at the Beneath the Sea Show in New Jersey, USA and the Dive Resort and Travel show in Shanghai, China over the March 28-30 weekend.

  • Limited ‘Notebook Edition’ LP release of new Coldplay album ‘Moon Music’ made using river plastic removed from the Rio Las Vacas, Guatemala by The Ocean Cleanup

  • First collaborative product the latest step in Coldplay’s support for global non-profit

  • Innovative product partnerships essential for long-term success of The Ocean Cleanup’s mission to rid the oceans of plastic

The Ocean Cleanup and Coldplay have confirmed that a limited ‘Notebook Edition’ LP release of the band’s album ‘Moon Music’ will be manufactured using plastic intercepted by The Ocean Cleanup from the Rio Las Vacas, Guatemala.

The mission of The Ocean Cleanup is to rid the oceans of plastic. To achieve this, the non-profit operates a dual strategy: cleaning up legacy plastic in the oceans and deploying Interceptors to capture trash in rivers and stop it entering the oceans.

Today’s announcement with Coldplay of this Notebook Edition LP is an example of the innovative product partnerships The Ocean Cleanup creates to give this plastic a new life in sustainable and durable products, ensuring the plastic never re-enters the marine environment.

The Ocean Cleanup project deployed Interceptor 006 in the Rio Las Vacas in 2023 to prevent plastic emissions into the Gulf of Honduras. Interceptor 006 made significant impact and captured large quantities of plastic – which has now been sorted, blended, tested and used to manufacture Coldplay’s limited edition physical release. The final product consists of 70% river plastic intercepted by The Ocean Cleanup and 30% recycled waste plastic bottles from other sources.The successful production of the Notebook Edition LP using intercepted river plastic marks an exciting new phase in Coldplay’s broad and long-standing support for The Ocean Cleanup. Coldplay provide financial support for the non-profit’s cleaning operations, sponsor Interceptor 005 in the Klang River, Malaysia (which the band named ‘Neon Moon I’) and share The Ocean Cleanup’s mission with millions of their fans during their record-breaking Music of the Spheres tour.Coldplay and The Ocean Cleanup collaborated closely during the intensive testing and quality control process, alongside processing and manufacturing partners Biosfera GT, Compuestos y Derivados S.A., Morssinkhof and Sonopress.Having proven the potential of their partnership, The Ocean Cleanup and Coldplay will continue to explore new and innovative ways to combine their impact and accelerate progress in the largest cleanup in history.

“Coldplay is an incredible partner for us and I’m thrilled that our plastic catch has helped bring Moon Music to life.” said Boyan Slat, Founder and CEO of The Ocean Cleanup. “Ensuring the plastic we catch never re-enters the marine environment is essential to our mission, and I’m excited to see how we’ll continue innovating with Coldplay and our other partners to rid the oceans of plastic – together.”

About the Ocean Cleanup

The Ocean Cleanup is an international non-profit that develops and scales technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. They aim to achieve this goal through a dual strategy: intercepting in rivers to stop the flow and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean. For the latter, The Ocean Cleanup develops and deploys large-scale systems to efficiently concentrate the plastic for periodic removal. This plastic is tracked and traced to certify claims of origin when recycling it into new products. To curb the tide via rivers, The Ocean Cleanup has developed Interceptor™ Solutions to halt and extract riverine plastic before it reaches the ocean. As of June 2024, the non-profit has collected over 12 million kilograms (26.4 million pounds) of plastic from aquatic ecosystems around the world. Founded in 2013 by Boyan Slat, The Ocean Cleanup now employs a broadly multi-disciplined team of approximately 140.
