Our goal is to in early 2019 arrange Bright-ups (Clean Ups) ourself around Europe. Although, we are not there yet & have therefor partnered up with PlasticOcean with finanical help via donations & awareness via promotion on our social medias.
PlasticOcean is an non-profit organisation based in California, US.
'Plastic Oceans Foundation engages people of all ages, in all social situations, to understand the danger of continuing to perceive plastic to be disposable. Once they become aware of the ultimate threat to human health, it will become a personal choice to prevent plastic waste from entering the environment. We plan to tackle this issue, through an awareness campaign using film and media – our documentary feature film, A Plastic Ocean. We will continue to spread the message of the film activating students through education, engaging with industries through entrepreneurship and partnering with global organizations actively changing their communities.
