About Us

We are creating awareness of ocean pollution among consumers – to drive global change.

Our goal is to increase global consciousness and act as ambassadors for the protection of our oceans. We are working on different projects in the area of research, clean-up activities and particularly media events. We want to best inform and activate consumers and connect NGOs, green tech and sustainable industry stakeholders to strengthen the community and leverage the movement. We are focused on pragmatic solutions and therefore scalable change.

How

We are convinced that change starts among us – the consumers. Conscious consumers can make a difference. Therefore, our focus is to fascinate and sensitize people around the world for the relevance of our oceans and present solutions on how to preserve them. We believe in the power of audio-visual messaging and will produce, aggregate and distribute TV and video formats with a strong informational and emotional impact. Knowledgeable consumers make right choices and therefore trigger change within the industries and governments. We need to synchronize the interests of our economy with the needs of our ecosystem and migrate from a linear to a circular economy.

Why

For decades we have exploited the oceans in the belief that they are too big to fail. But pollution, acidification, global warming and illegal, unregulated fishing have severely affected our oceans. In particular plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues. Our oceans contain more than 150 million metric tons of plastic. This corresponds to 5.25 trillion pieces. And every year between 8 and 12 million metric tons of plastic are added. If we won’t take action against the ongoing pollution by the year 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in our seas. Fish, sea mammals and sea birds are heavily affected by the plastic debris. They mistake it for food or get entangled with it. For quite some time plastic has entered our food chain. The adverse health effects for humans are yet little known but will last for generations. Our oceans are our life support system: every second breath we take derives from there, they absorbe more than a fourth of our CO2 emissions and are home to more than 80% of all life on earth. The impact on our oceans will have an impact on mankind around the world.

Projects

1st global „plastic poll“

Together with market researcher YouGov we carried out the 1st global „plastic poll“. We wanted to analyse the state of mind of consumers regarding ocean plastic pollution, their actual plastic consumption behaviour and their readiness for change. Following countries have participated in this important research: Germany, UK, USA, Brazil, Egypt, China and Australia. The findings you can find here.

Plastic reduction campaign

In co-operation with our ambassadors we will launch a „plastic reduction campaign“ on audio-visual media that will sensitize consumers and offer simple plastic reduction guidelines to initiate a more conscious consumption and responsible waste management.

Household plastic reduction calculator

We will offer private households an interactive tool that gives plastic reduction recommendations and helps them calculate the personal and national impact of such initiatives. Individuals will be able to share their personal achievements with their social community and initiate a new life style.

1st World Oceans Media Day
June 8th, 2020

In order to create a worldwide movement for the cause we are developing a global media event focusing on Free TV and social media on June 8th, 2020 – the United Nations World Oceans Day.

We will produce a docutainment program that brings to life the beauty and fragility of our oceans, presents solutions to end their destruction and outlines simple daily protection guidelines. We aim to fascinate and sensitize audiences around the world and trigger ambassadorship among consumers, industry and governments.

Video Platform

We will establish a global video platform for all ocean protection initiatives based on professional/user generated, NGO and green tech content. We will cover big and small solutions to protect our oceans with a special focus on plastics. Our aim is to become the first video hub for all consumers and stakeholders when it comes to ocean protection.
