OUR IMPACT

Our ocean cleanup supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals

ReSea Project is all about cleaning up the oceans by removing plastic and making sure the plastic is recycled into new products and packaging. Find out why we encourage companies to take action and support our plastic collection. 

MORE THAN

400 tons

of plastic removed from the ocean in 2019.

MORE THAN

520,000 euro 

paid to local plastic collectors in Indonesia in 2019.

MORE THAN

600 tons

less CO2 emitted into the atmosphere.

When you invest in our ocean cleanup, you contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

4 euro investment from you = over 1 euro to the plastic collector

For every 4 euro we receive, we pay 1.30 euro to the plastic collector, decreasing the poverty level for our plastic collectors and their families. We pay an average of 460 euro/month to each plastic collector (In 2019, the average income in Indonesia was 170 euro/month. Source: CEIC). This has a positive impact on the family’s ability to access education and health services.

Investing in our ocean cleanup = significantly increased income for plastic collectors

With more companies like yours joining our cleanup mission, we are able to employ more plastic collectors. We are currently increasing the plastic collector’s income by approx. 170%. In 2020, we expect to employ 100+ new plastic collectors. This accelerates the economic growth in local communities.

Recycling the plastic collected = less new plastic entering the world

When you buy Ocean Pledges, you not only remove plastic from the ocean, you also ensure that less plastic ends up in the ocean. We distribute the plastic we collect for recycling thus replacing virgin (newly produced) plastic, which is made from fossil fuels that need to be extracted and refined.

Using recycled plastic = reducing CO2 emissions

By sending our collected plastic for recycling, we are combatting climate change. Using recycled plastic reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions compared to the production of new plastic. Around 1.6 kilo less CO2 per kilo recycled plastic compared to 1 kilo virgin plastic.

Removing plastic from the ocean = improving marine life

Investing in Ocean Pledges means removing plastic from the ocean and thereby improving its health. The ocean is home to 300,000+ marine species and is the “lungs of the earth” because it contributes 50-85% of the oxygen in the planet’s atmosphere.

Cooperating with recycling partners = building a sustainable future

We cooperate with innovative recycling partners who turn the plastic we remove from the ocean on your behalf into new plastic products, thus creating a circular value chain and building a sustainable future.

A true difference is made

Estimated plastic collection in 2020 

In 2019 we removed 426 ton of plastic, and our goal for 2020 is 900 ton.

We are very humble about the fact that we only have a business case when our customers get true value from us collecting plastic on their behalf.
