No Plastic in the Ocean is the One Ocean Foundation’s project aimed at combating marine pollution from plastics and microplastics. Creating awareness of the problem and at the same time a concrete impact, through collecting plastic waste from marine and coastal areas, are the dual objectives of this project which was born in a year when the correlation between our health and that of the environment hit home with clarity.
Areas of intervention are identified in developing countries where most of the plastic waste that threatens the oceans originates from. Thanks to collaborations with local partners, plastics are collected, traced and re-entered into the production cycle, favoring the development of a circular economy.
More Miles Less Plastic is an environmental initiative that One Ocean Foundation has developed and implemented for the nautical world and more specifically for sailing events. The two main objectives of this project consist in creating awareness on ocean issues while at the same time having a concrete impact through the collection of plastic waste from marine and coastal areas. The initiative is part of the project No Plastic in the Ocean that aims to fight marine pollution from plastics and microplastics.
In specific, for every mile traveled by each participating boat during the sailing event, One Ocean Foundation commits to collect plastic from the ocean.
