The environmental benefits of our cleanup

The impact of our cleanup

OWP allows us to remove plastic from the ocean, and the difference made by this is significant. But it can be even better – with your help.  


Every year 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the oceans. But, even though that is a high number, we are on our way. Currently, our goal for 2020 is to collect 4,000 tons of plastic from the oceans. We have already collected many tons of plastic from the oceans. That number will increase every year. 

Since the beginning of our clean-up efforts we have removed over 3,600 tons of plastic waste from the oceans.


It can be difficult to estimate how much 3,600 tons of plastic actually is. We know. It is equivalent to 128,000,000 500 ml. water bottles collected every single year.

As a positive side benefit, Ocean Waste Plastic reduces CO2 emission by >50% compared to virgin plastic.

We want to clean up the oceans, reduce waste, recover plastic before it ends up in our oceans and provide an alternative source of input.
