CURRENT PROJECTS

WFO EUROPE

Beach Clean-ups

Waste Free Oceans is committed to cleaning not only the oceans, but also the beaches. We organise beach clean-up events regularly, in various parts of the world, together with local organisations and volunteers.

Mixed Plastic Waste Project

Performing beach clean-ups in the North Adriatic coast and along the River Po in Italy, sorting the beach plastic waste suitable for recycling, obtaining the recycled plastic from film packaging, processing the first panels and building the first shelter demo to be exhibited at the Ecomondo fair in Italy and, at the same time, educating people and raising awareness on waste collection and sorting and developing new plastic products with the latest recycling technologies.

The Azores project

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the prevention and the clean-up of the plastics pollution in the Atlantic Ocean, by removing floating marine litter in São Miguel island, raising awareness of stakeholders, both policy makers and the public at large, by collecting information that documents the impact of marine debris, building the capacity of the project partners and supporting the mobilisation of resources for a larger follow-up project that could cover the whole Azores area.

Let's Clean Up the Danube Together

A three year repetitive programme of identified hotspot clean-ups and remediation projects in the Danube river basin, starting from Bulgaria and working towards the Black Sea in Romania, and in the Mediterranean, in close partnership with strong international partners.

Raising Awareness

With strong ties to EU institutions and industry leaders, and with the help of WFO champion MEP Søren Gade, we lobby and partner policy makers, stakeholders and passionate individuals at all levels. Through all our events and projects, we aim to raise public and industry awareness of the issues associated with marine litter.

Educating the next generation on good marine habits

Introducing "Plastian the Little Fish" - a children's book highlighting the impacts of marine waste on our oceans.

We aim to translate this book into every major language and introduce Plastian in schools, homes and libraries across Europe and beyond.

The Ocean Plastic Book

The Ocean Plastic Book is made environmentally-friendly from recycled ocean plastic. Every book helps to clean the ocean. It tells the story of little Pippa. She gets to live her dream and meets all the ocean animals. Only to find out that they cannot swim. Will she be able to free them from plastics – and finally swim with them?
