Our Partners

We have started working closely with the following:

 

5 Gyres

The 5 Gyres Institute is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council since 2017. Our mission is to empower action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution through science, education, and adventure.
Our vision is to witness plastic pollution decline in the environment until it is no longer found in the world’s oceans.

Our mission is to conduct research and communicate about the global impact of plastic pollution in the world’s oceans and employ strategies to eliminate the accumulation of plastic pollution in the 5 subtropical gyres.

Algalita Marine Research Foundation

Our organization was the first to expose the severity of plastic in our ocean after our Founder, Captain Charles Moore, discovered the swirling soup of plastic pollution in the Pacific – now known by many as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

As leaders in the movement to end plastic pollution, we educate and equip local and global influencers with the knowledge and resources needed to prevent plastic pollution.
