To this end, we offer you to organize or participate to collections on beaches, lakes, rivers and sea beds all over the world. We provide you support and equipment, to ease the collection and the educational approach. During the collection, you are invited to sort and count the waste, and then report your results on the website. Those will be use to establish a global report about ocean waste (the most found type of waste, the number of cigarette butt collected …etc.). For some types of litter, like bio-medias or mermaids tears, we even try to get to the root, find the source of the waste and try to restrain it.
The goal of Ocean Initiatives is to raise awareness about ocean pollution, to encourage people to take action, and to collect data on ocean litter to help scientific research and lobbying actions.
How to participate
To contribute to this program, you can go on the Ocean Initiatives’ website, and choose to participate or organize a collect. Make sure you fill out the form after your collect!
You don’t need to bring anything : we will send you all the equipment in a kit. You will find a recycled banner, posters, recycled plastic bag, hessian bags, and gloves for each participant.
