At a Plastic Ocean Foundation we aim to turn the Tide on Plastic Pollution.
We are a charitable organisation registered in Hong Kong, dedicated to creating a wave of change to stop plastic pollution and to be part of the solution through science, education and policy advocacy.
We are a group of dedicated scientists, educators, social entrepreneurs, scholars and journalists who are concerned about the fragile state of our ocean and are working together with other NGOs and the community to change attitudes towards plastic in one generation.
We are not an anti-plastic organisation.
We agree plastic is an amazing product; versatile, cheap, light, and it saves a lot of lives too - think of plastics used in medicine!
It’s how we dispose of plastic that is causing the problem. Our addiction to plastic and our ‘disposable’ lifestyle are now starting to pose a threat to the survival of marine species, as well as ourselves!
