TOGETHER FOR A CLEANER OCEAN

TO PROTECT OUR MARINE LIFE AND SRI LANKA’S BEAUTIFUL
BEACHES, WE WORK CLOSELY WITH THE FISHERMEN COMMUNITY 

Our studies found that local fishermen generate tonnes of annual plastic waste when they are at sea. By making it easy and worthwhile for fishers to keep things clean out in the deep blue, we ensure that the ocean can continue to provide for the livelihoods and lifestyle of our hardworking people.

OUTCOME

WE COLLECT 20 TONNES OF PLASTIC EACH MONTH FROM FISHERS
THAT’S AROUND 1 MILLION BOTTLES!
