The Ocean Cleanup
In the Summer of 2011, 16-year-old Boyan Slat was diving in Greece, and realized he came across more plastic bags than fish. He was asked to write a high school science paper & used that time to investigate the plastic pollution problem, and why people claimed it was nearly impossible to clean up. This work led him to the idea of using the natural ocean currents to let the oceans clean themselves. That's how the Ocean Cleanup was officially founded in 2013.
Our passive mobile cleanup systems are designed to capture ocean plastic debris. Models show by utilizing vast rotational ocean currents, approximately 50 cleanup systems each 2km in size can harvest almost half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years. If you try to fight the ocean, you will lose. The Ocean Cleanup’s systems are designed to follow the oceans currents, catching plastic in its path.
All of our clothing is made from extra soft organic cotton clothing and our accessories are made from 100% cotton. Proceeds from sales go towards The Ocean Cleanup.
