Company Overview

NAECO, which is the word Ocean backwards, exists to improve our daily lives. We believe in a better, safer and cleaner world through our broader mission of helping to reverse plastic pollution, particularly as it affects our ocean. In early 2020, NAECO converted its long-standing supply chain relationships to provide key PPE (N95 masks, gloves, sanitizer, etc) to help eradicate the coronavirus. Ultimately we exist to help reverse damage to our ocean. NAECO is the word OCEAN,​ reversed.
