Our mission is to protect the oceans from the source. We do that through awareness, activation and supporting innovative solutions.
Our oceans and seas are full of (micro) plastics from objects such as: fishing nets, cigarette buds, plastic packagings and single use products.
This problem is caused by the marine industry but also through our consumer behaviour. It is time to change that!
We believe in a clean future, but to accomplish that requires some behavioural change.
Therefore we have launched our sweater collection with the message:
“No Fish Ever Trashed Your House.”
Of each sweater sold, the full profits go to startups and initiatives that have a proven solution to clean up the plastic soup in our oceans.
– more fish than plastic in our oceans in 2050;
– us and our future generations to enjoy the beautiful blue oceans that we still have today;
– clean water for all creatures, healthy people and a healthy planet.
Join the movement!
You can support us by spreading the message “No Fish Ever Trashed Your House”.
Do you want to be more involved? You can support us through the sweater collection, made from organic cotton.
100% of the profits go to organisations that commit to: do research, spread knowledge or work on innovative solutions (such as clean tech).
How do we support the ocean?
Of every sweater sold, the full profits will be donated to initiatives that
have a proven track record in fighting the plastic soup.
These are startups or organisations that do research, spread awareness or have created a clean tech solution.
All to prevent plastics from the source.
By The Ocean We Unite
By the Ocean we Unite is a Dutch foundation with charitable status (ANBI)
that contributes to preventing more plastics from ending up in our oceans.
Through the organization of a variety of activities –
sailing expeditions, lectures, documentaries & more (see below) –
they conduct research, create awareness, educate and activate people,
organisations and governments to make much needed changes.
The Great Bubble Barrier
Every minute, the equivalent of one full garbage truck of plastic trash is dumped in the sea.
That is 1440 trucks per 24 hours and in total 8 billion kilos per year.
With 80% of those plastics coming directly from our use on land.
The Bubble Barrier creates a barrier stopping plastics from flowing past,
but it also allows fish and ships to pass through the barrier unimpeded.
Their solution can be used around the clock, everywhere.
Thanks to your contribution, they will soon be removing the plastics from waterways near you.
