Removing plastic from the world's most polluted oceans
When just 25 people commit to donating just $1.50 a day, amazing things can happen. Marine life can be saved and ecosystems can be restored.
Just 25 people committing to $1.50 a day gives us the ability to pick up around 2 miles of trash, plastic and other junk every single week.*
2 miles of plastic removed from out of the ocean can make enough recycled composite bricks to build 3 eco homes for low income families
There is approximately 50,000 tonnes of plastic and garbage waste covering 5,000,000 m2 in the Caribbean. The more of us that take responsibility for fixing this problem the faster we can do.
WHAT WILL IT TAKE?
Giving per day
Eco homes possible *
Clean the Asian Ocean of all plastics
Power our trawlers with biofuel made from the plastic waste
Save the marine life, especially the Whale Shark
Develop entire eco-villages built with our re-purposed eco-blocks
House 1 million people suffering homelessness around the world
Utilising new technology, we are able to fully reuse any and all recycled ocean plastic to make building blocks for our eco-homes. Each eco-home will be entirely made of the ocean plastic sourced off the coasts of the Caribbean and the Maldives.
It is our hope that by repurposing the island's trash, we can create a fully self-supporting infrastructure: designed to give those in need extra support and affordable accommodation, while also providing economic opportunities with new labour needs and business opportunities for the local community.
The possibilities are endless with the eco-blocks, and the positive effects are enormous.
*Numbers rounded. based on voluntary donations over 12-24 month. Amount cleaned up and houses built subject to weather conditions, government restrictions, exchange rates and other factors. We have done our best to approximate accurate figures however the actual amount required may be more or less.
