OUR MISSION

Connecting people, protecting ocean health

Our mission is to effectively connect people, institutions and organisations, through evidence-based education and experiential learning, to keep South Africa’s beaches clean and healthy and to protect and enhance ocean health.

Our choices matter.
Our actions are far reaching.

On-the-go food packaging is the most common source of plastic pollution found on the South African coastline.

This comes from us.
