Imagine a world where the oceans are free of plastic trash…
Algalita envisions a marine environment that is healthy, sustainable and productive for all living creatures, free from plastic pollution. We believe that together, we can combat the crisis through research, education, and action. Do you share our vision?
…the reality is:
As the pioneers in the study of plastic pollution, we were the first to define the research methodology for collecting and analyzing microplastic samples from the ocean.
Captain Moore and his research team continue to monitor one of the most polluted areas of the world – the North Pacific Gyre, home of the swirling vortex of plastic trash.
We spread solutions through international youth-led action campaigns to reduce plastic waste by educating, motivating, and empowering students and teachers.
