Plastic Free and Healthy Oceans – The Perfect World Foundation

Join us in saving our oceans

‘Save the Ocean’ is The Perfect World Foundation’s overall project focusing on restoring our oceans, with campaigns such as The Blue Bucket which aims to engage everyone to help pick up plastic from our oceans and along coasts and on beaches, with the goal of spreading knowledge about the impact of plastic waste has on our oceans. Ghost Net Zero, which is our major campaign focuses on, among other things, locating, picking up, recycling and reuse of lost fishing equipment, so-called ghost nets.

THE BLUE BUCKET

With 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.

GHOST NET ZERO

Lost fishing equipment, nets and cages are the greatest contributors to microplastics in our oceans. Every year, more than 600,000 tones of fishing equipment are lost at sea, which continues to “ghost fish” for hundreds of years, if it remains in the ocean. With our Ghost Net Zero campaign we work to spread knowledge and support innovations and activities to enable localization, salvaging, recycling and reusing of lost fishing equipment, so-called ghost nets. Our vision is “Zero” ghost nets in our oceans.
