your impact

Simply by setting up your fundraiser, you’ll be playing a vital role in ridding the oceans of plastic while empowering others to join you. Every year, millions of tons of plastic are washed into our oceans, with the majority being emitted via rivers. The ocean plastic crisis devastates wildlife, ecosystems, communities, and livelihoods around the world each day, and urgent action is required to repair the damage humanity has caused.
