2023 Accomplished | How We Did

It’s been a stellar year for The Ocean Cleanup. New deployments, global negotiations, and an incredible global catch total of over 8 million kg (almost 18 million lb!) of trash removed from oceans and rivers worldwide.

So, as a special holiday gift, Catching Up is serving a selection of 2023 highlights from our chats with crew members (and special guests) this year – curated and presented by your always-festive host, Dan van der Kooy.

From the entire crew of The Ocean Cleanup, we thank you for listening and coming with us on this mission to rid the oceans of plastic. We wish each of you a very happy new year, and we can’t wait to share 2024 with you – so make sure you’re subscribed.
