Our Work2021-10-05T16:56:36-02:30

Stay up to date with all of our latest clean-ups.    Although these photos of marine debris are disturbing, our intention is not to point fingers.  On the contrary – we are extremely grateful to the municipalities and Harbour Authorities that support clean-up efforts and take action to reduce marine dumping!  We are not here to blame any industry for the marine debris that litters our coast – we need commitment and action NOW to remove – and prevent –  further plastic waste from entering the marine environment.  We all need to work together – governments, industries, NGOs and individuals – to improve our waste management practices and restore our harbours and ocean environment for the benefit of all.
