How do we recover ocean plastic?
The best way to recover plastic is by using our own two hands, fishing nets, or other tools.
Having the right vessel is extremely important because each ecosystem is unique.
We often leverage boom systems to stop plastic before it can get into the ocean.
Developing clean ocean technologies improves our cleaning efficiency.
Every pound pulled is documented and tracked
We take our cleanup operations seriously and always go the extra mile to ensure our crews are maximizing their impact. That’s why we document and track each and every pound of trash we recover.
We’ve outlined the entire process so you can see exactly what steps our captains and crews take to document the trash they recover during each cleanup mission. The entire process is audited and verified quarterly by the Better Business Bureau.
A photo is taken of the crew that will be cleaning that day.
The plastic-polluted area that our crew will clean is photographed before any cleaning takes place.
Photos are taken of the crew throughout the cleanup.
Photos of the area are taken once the cleanup is complete.
All of the recovered plastic and debris is placed into small sacks for documentation and transport.
Each bag is individually weighed and documented on a TrashTracker™ Documentation Sheet.
The TrashTracker™ Documentation Sheet includes all of the information from the cleanup, including the date, location, duration, crew members, individual weights of each bag, total weight for the day, and the signatures of the recorder and location manager.
The plastic-filled sacks are picked up by our collection crew and transported back to our regional facility where all data is uploaded into our digital TrashTracker™.
FROM OCEAN TO PRODUCT
SPREAD THE WORD
There’s always a way to help
We know times are tough for everyone right now, so if you’re unable to pull a pound today, we sure would appreciate it if you could share this page on social media with folks who might be able to do so.
Visibility is key to our mission and anything you can do to help spread awareness will make a huge difference.
Together, we can end the ocean plastic crisis.
