We are IN MOCEAN for plastic-free oceans and coastlines.


Hand in hand with local communities in remote coastal areas we want to create systems for domestic plastic waste management and reducing plastic pollution in adjacent oceans and shorelines. We will provide small-scale recycling machines and the necessary know-how to turn plastic waste into something useful.

In the long term, we want to support the local communities in creating circular economies in seaside areas with basic infrastructure that turn plastic waste into a precious resource and create new employment opportunities.

Our work starts where big solutions cannot reach.
