What is The Blue Bucket?

Plastic free oceans, coast lines and beaches
Through our ocean campaign “The Blue Bucket” we want to engage everyone to pick up plastic and debris from our oceans, coast lines and beaches. The Blue Bucket, which is a symbol of the campaign itself – with the aim of raising awareness about the massive plastic pollution of the world’s oceans – is also a tool to be used to pick up plastic debris into. Yes… the bucket is made of plastic (recycled) but is intended to be used again and again, instead of disposable garbage bags. And the bucket should of course never end up in the ocean.

8 billion kilos of plastic and 8 billion people
Every year, more than 8 billion kilos of plastic end up in our oceans… but we are also almost 8 billion people on our planet. If we pick up only one kilo of plastic per person it would, in theory, mean that we can succeed in cleaning up our oceans from plastic debris. No bad goal, right!

We clean our oceans from plastic

The Blue Bucket campaign was launched on “World Ocean Day” in Cannes 2019. The goal of the campaign is to inspire all boat owners, and everyone who spends time on and by the ocean, to get a Blue Bucket bucket… and start picking up plastic and debris from our oceans. Together we can create the world’s largest team of Ocean Cleaners. Advocates for our The Blue Bucket campaign are The Perfect World ambassadors; the American marine biologist and oceanographer Dr Sylvia Earle (recipient of The Perfect World Award 2017) and the Swedish Hollywood actor Joel Kinnaman.
