Debris Free Oceans is a volunteer-run organization that inspires local communities to responsibly manage the lifecycle of plastics and waste as part of a global initiative to eradicate marine debris from our beaches, reefs, and oceans.
We motivate our generation to RETHINK disposable and single-use consumption by embracing lifestyles with more action and less clutter.
We spawn innovative means to REUSE what we already have instead of spending time and money on products we don’t need.
We RECAPTURE marine debris to prevent its consumption by marine life, its harmful interaction with our global food web, and its impacts on the aesthetic and intrinsic values of our oceans.
We promote ways to REDUCE the amount of waste that we send to landfill and reduce what we each consume on a daily basis.
We promote RECYCLING and regenerating objects unfit for reuse into functional and indispensable innovations.
We inspire to REDESIGN and remake marine debris into artistic and functional contributions to our society.
Host zero-waste events that highlight ways individuals can integrate zero-waste principles into their daily lives.
Cleanup marine debris during fun and engaging outreach events and campaigns.
Our sustainability consulting program serves to educate companies about how to eliminate waste and increase product reuse and recycle capacity.
Through our education program we inform communities about how we can take steps to reduce our desire for single-use items.
