An estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic end up in our oceans every year.
94% of the plastic that enters the ocean ends up on the sea floor. Our partner, Waste Free Oceans is a non-profit foundation engaged in prevention and remediation actions on marine litter, developing new ways of collecting and upcycling plastic waste to create meaningful products. Involving innovative collection techniques, local communities, recyclers and plastic converters, their activities spread across the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, the Black Sea and the Danube. Their dedication in substantially reducing ocean plastic and contributing to a circular economy makes them the ideal partner for EBENESS.
