Our Ocean Cleanup Initiative
As well as planting trees and protecting habitats we are funding projects to help tackle the huge amount of plastic that is in our Oceans.
and rivers so far
Together. For a plastic-free ocean.
We’ve teamed up with the ReSea Project in Indonesia and fund plastic removal on a monthly basis.
This purpose-driven company is making waves beyond the sea as it’s community-driven cleanup solution creates jobs through the demand of local cleanup teams. In turn, for those employed within cleanup teams, this supports their income and improve living conditions, and the means to better support their families.
ReSea Project’s cleanup process is certified by DNV, and all plastic collections and its origin are fully traceable. The plastic is recovered from oceans and rivers, sorted, bagged, tagged, weighed and documented, and delivered at local waste banks who distribute the plastic for recycling and waste handling purposes.
Further to this partnership, we strive to develop innovative products that contribute to preserving our waters. So far we’ve introduced carpet underlay made from recycled plastic, and carpets made from nylon fish nets retrieved from the Ocean. And we won’t stop there! click here to find out more.
