Turning the tide on Ocean Plastic

We pull plastic directly out of the ocean. Through our work, we are creating permanent change in the top seven most polluted areas of the world.

Why we exist

Our mission is to preserve the marine environment by ridding the ocean of plastic for good. We exist to clean, conserve, and educate. Our seas and oceans are the most important ecosystem on Earth. We want to help protect all the wonderful life which call them home.

Ocean Plastic Pollution is a symptom of a broken system. With your help, we can find a solution.

What we do

Seven Clean Seas have developed the world’s first plastic-offsetting service. We work with companies to pull plastic out of the ocean on their behalf. We help companies neutralise the impact they make on our planet and seas. Supply chains can be laden with plastic, our seas shouldn't be.

How we do what we do

Plastic pollution is a global problem. But it’s born from a lack of infrastructure for responsible plastic consumption at a local level, repeated millions of times over. We work with local coastal communities to install working waste management collection services. These stop plastic ever entering the marine environment of an ecologically important Marine Protected Area. These projects help educate, create jobs and protect the livelihoods in these communities.

It starts with rivers

An estimated 70% of all ocean plastic originates from Rivers. Seven Clean Seas has developed a revolutionary high volume, low cost River Plastic Recovery System to collect plastics before they ever reach the ocean.

Action

At our heart, Seven Clean Seas is about action. We are hands’on sea cleaners, working on a daily basis to pull plastic out of the ocean. Our clean up operations provide work for local communities, most recently those who lost their jobs in tourism due to the COVID crisis. We partner with companies to offset the plastic in their supply chain, pulling the equivalent amount of plastic out of the ocean on their behalf.

Education

Education is the key to achieving plastic-free oceans. If you’re faced with the impact of your plastic consumption on a daily basis, it can be difficult if not impossible to picture the impact each plastic straw can have on our seas and the animals in them. As well as helping to combat the effects of the world’s plastic consumption on our oceans, Seven Clean Seas provide education on marine protection and responsible plastic consumption as a part of our mission to turn the tide on Ocean Plastic.

Conservation

The seas and oceans are the most important ecosystem on Earth. Over 70% of the world is covered in water, and the life within produces over half of our oxygen.  Yet, if we carry on as we are, it’s predicted that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the sea than fish. We’re dedicated to changing this – every piece of plastic pulled out of the sea is one step closer to conserving the marine environment.

Innovation

As we have developed the world’s first plastic-offsetting solution. We are also developing an innovative river clean up device. This will stop plastic from reaching the ocean before someone needs to pull it out. We won't stop until we've found a way to stop single use plastic for good.

Motivation

Plastics in the natural environment are at crisis levels. Up to 38,000 jumbo jets worth of plastic enters the oceans each year. It's engulfing our oceans, clogging rivers and covering coastlines. An estimated 100,000 marine animals are losing their lives to it every year. We need to act now before it’s too late. We’re committed to providing infrastructure and gender equality in the areas we tackle the plastic crisis, aligning to SGD goals 1 (no poverty), 5 (gender equality) and 14 (life underwater).

Donation

The average person’s plastic footprint is 78.5kg a year. At Seven Clean Seas we’ve developed a plastic offsetting system which means we can pull plastic out of the ocean on behalf of our consumers – every product we sell helps to offset your plastic footprint, from a month’s worth with our water bottles to an entire year with any purchase of our limited edition prints.
