Plastic Ocean Project

Ocean Conservation

Plastic Ocean Project is committed to removing plastic waste from the ocean through education, action, and research. Plastic Ocean Project works in partnership with local communities to organize beach cleanups and educational events such as fishing for plastic tournaments and their trash for trees initiative. They also partner with universities and research centers to study the effects of microplastics in the ocean. This is important because these microplastics are being consumed by marine life and then they work there way up the food chain to humans. The goal is to come up with innovative ways to “mine” for these microplastics to clean up the ocean.

They are currently working on a documentary If the Ocean Could Talk that will hopefully be released by 2022. RELiON is excited to partner with the Plastic Ocean Project and assist them in funding this new documentary.
