Join the mission

Ocean plastic pollution is a worldwide problem and we are taking a positive action to solve this issue on a global scale. Our mission is not one we can achieve alone and we welcome and encourage partners to accelerate our impact by joining the largest cleanup in history. Our mission is long term. We calculate it will take 20 years to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. Therefore, we look for long-term partnerships with those who want to make a genuine and sustained commitment to our mission, create a legacy for themselves and be part of the movement of those solving one of the biggest environmental problems of this era. Does your company want to be part of the mission?
