The Ocean Cleanup


The Ocean Cleanup has developed the world’s first feasible method to rid the oceans of plastic.

Every week the volume of two Empire State Buildings worth of plastic floats into the oceans, where it damages eco-systems, damages economies and enters the food chain, thereby potentially damaging us humans.

Instead of going after the plastic – which would take many thousands of years and billions of dollars to complete – The Ocean Cleanup has developed a passive system which allows the ocean currents to concentrate the plastic itself. Research has now shown that we can clean up about half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in ten years’ time.

Your donation will help us cover the cost of developing and testing the necessary prototypes, as well as conducting expeditions and other operations.

Please note that on your financial statement the recipient will be noted as the Netherland-America Foundation (NAF). The NAF is our fiscal sponsor and therefore provides donors under U.S. tax law the possibility to deduct their gift to the Ocean Cleanup from their taxes.
