Plastic pollution is at crisis point and you can help

Whether you live inland or by the sea, with almost no effort you can help fix the problem. This 100% charitable initiative is not just for the environmentally focused – it’s for everyone and every organisation – it’s for you. It’s new, so please take the lead and sign up today.

Business

If you have taken any steps at all to reduce waste, for example if you are committed to recycling, list on the directory(map). You will find plenty of other waste saving ideas on this site. It is a genuine business opportunity to be found by more customers.

Everyone

In your usual routine commit pick up at least one piece of plastic once a week. Signing up is important because it puts a once-off ‘Hero’ dot on the map and adds to the global count – others will follow your lead. Also, prefer businesses listed on the directory.

Schools, Not for profits, Rotary, Environmental Groups and others

You can easily take small or big steps to be part of the solution to the plastics crisis and use this platform to build community and networks.

Double outcome donations

Donations are split 50% for the development of the Plastic Free Oceans project and 50% to install solar power in remote Pacific island schools see Its Time Foundation.  Giving kids carbon free electricity for a modern education is worthwhile in itself, but also the schools commit to spend one hour each month picking up plastics.  Ocean drift plastics as well as their own. There will be 1000s of kids and villagers clearing remote beaches of plastic. See the video below from Nacula Island Fiji – how many do you think they picked up?

 

Plastic Free Oceans is an initiative of Its Time Foundation.  Please note that administration, rent and office costs of the charity are capped at a maximum 15%. That is much less than most charities, so you can be confident your contribution will be well spent for a better environment for us all.
