For the love of our Ocean
In March 2016, Willemijn Peeters founded Searious Business to prevent plastic soup at the very source. Coming from business and having worked in sustainability for years, she firmly believes companies are the true catalysts of change.
Every MINUTE 20,000 kilos of plastic enter our Ocean.
That's more than one garbage truck of plastic per minute.
Searious Business is committed to bring this amount back to zero.
Together, we need to protect the blue heart of our planet.
Because our lives depend on it.
We offer novel innovation projects to global companies in high volume markets where plastics are involved.
We ReThink, we ReDesign, we ReBrand.
Our unique combination of drive, vision and a total value chain approach help our customers to be ‘leaders of change’ in their sectors: in Food packaging, Furniture and Consumer electronics. This way, you can show the world how to move away from oil-based plastics.
We will help you to build your business model towards a sustainable business model with increasing margins. And even more important: with it, we create a lasting change. Together we preserve the planet for the next generations.
Searious Business is your partner to become a game changer - let’s make our Ocean plastic-free!

Willemijn Peeters, Director Searious Business, wins Plastic Recycling Europe Award 2018
"Willemijn Peeters has put the full force of her personality and very considerable capabilities into establishing an initiative to prevent plastics from ending up in the environment, by helping businesses implement more sustainable ways of producing and distributing goods," said Ton Emans.
"She has done this by herself, not as part of a larger organization. That takes courage, conviction and commitment, which she has shown and why she was unanimously voted ambassador of the year."
Collaboration with Ellen MacArthur Foundation
Searious Business signed ‘A line in the sand’ – global commitment to eliminate plastic pollution at the source.
The New Plastics Economy Global Commitment is led by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, in collaboration with UN Environment, and was officially unveiled at the Our Ocean Conference in Bali (Oct 2018).
