Imagine a world where the oceans are free of plastic trash.
Sea creatures don’t get strangled, disfigured or poisoned by foreign objects. Fish don’t pass plastics down the food chain. And we, as consumers, remember every time we buy something that plastic lasts forever.
The reality is…
We envision a plastic-free 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?
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.
EDUCATION & LEADERSHIP
We have launched a wave of youth-led action and awareness campaigns throughout the world to reduce plastic waste by educating, motivating, and empowering youth.
Captain Moore and his crew have recently returned home from one of the most polluted areas of the world – the North Pacific Gyre, home of the swirling vortex of plastic trash.
