"FOR SOCIETY TO PROGRESS, WE SHOULD NOT ONLY MOVE FORWARD BUT ALSO CLEAN UP AFTER OURSELVES." ~Boyan Slat

There are an estimated 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic floating in and around the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
It’s one of the biggest Environmental issues of Our time.

I Know This Sounds Glum, but we can do something about it!


There’s a good chance that if you’ve stood next to the Ocean… any Ocean, you were moved.

I believe I learned to swim before I could walk. From the day I first stepped into the deep blue to this day, it brings me endless contentment, joy and peace.

Our planet has drastically changed over the past 100 years. As a global collective we didn’t pay close attention to how it was being looked after. And perhaps we trusted industry to develop best practices with reverence and it’s longevity in mind.
Sadly, most industries have not.

The industrial revolution brought on a quickened pace of commerce. Mass production of plastic is one of several reasons our Oceans and their inhabitants are endangered today.

From doing our part to minimize our consumption of single use plastics, educating people who live along the water that it’s not a dumping ground and the thinking twice before we throw away, replace & repeat…

We have a lot we can do to help halt and reverse made-made pollution.


The OCEAN CLEANUP is a non-profit that is targeting to begin gathering trillions of pieces of plastic that are floating in our globes garbage patches today.

A solution was dreamed up by a very ambitious, bright young man is finally becoming a reality:

The OCEAN CLEANUP is a non-profit organization, developing advanced technologies to rid the Earth’s oceans of plastic. By utilizing the ocean currents to our advantage, our passive drifting systems are estimated to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years’ time.”

“In 2011, at age 16, Slat came across more plastic than fish while diving in Greece. He decided to devote a high school project for deeper investigation into ocean plastic pollution and why it was considered impossible to clean up. He later came up with the idea to build a passive system, using the circulating ocean currents to his advantage, which he presented at a TEDx talk in Delft in 2012.”

In 2013, Boyan Slat founded The Ocean Cleanup, a Non-Profit Entity.

Today, this is how far his initiative has come. The first mission has launched and the cleanup is underway.
Here’s a wonderful chance to support him, or Oceans, World and Future Generations.
