Swisha en gåva för havet!

100 kr = 1 kg plast från havet längs Sveriges kust.

Att ta bort 100 gram kan vara tillräckligt för att rädda en havsfägel.

Att ta bort 0,5 kg plast ur havet kan vara tillräckligt för att rädda en säl.

Så oavsett storlek på din gåva så gör du stor skillnad för havets djurliv :)

Frequently asked questions

How does my bracelet help clean the ocean?

Each CleanSea bracelet funds our removal of 1 kilo (2 pounds) of trash from the ocean. They are our way of funding cleanups, and the foundation of the CleanSea project. They fund costs such as wage for our cleanup teams, gear for our cleanups, transportation to cleanup sites etc. CleanSea's mission is to remove as much trash from the ocean as possible, and the profits we earn will be used to help us grow so we can remove even more trash from the ocean in the future. 

How does CleanSea remove ocean trash?

At CleanSea we remove ocean trash in three ways.

1. Coastal cleanups: This keeps the coastline clean and beautiful, protects coastal marine life, and prevents trash from returning to the ocean.

2. Surface cleanups. We remove plastic floating on the surface in marinas, preventing it from drifting further out into the ocean and threatening  marine life. 

3. Dive cleanups. We dive to remove the trash that ends up on the ocean floor in marinas, such as old tires, carbatteries and ghost nets. This way, we can also help protect marine life from the harmful effects of trash on the ocean floor.

95% of the trash we find on our cleanups is plastic. Around 50% is single use plastics such as plastic bags, bottles and packaging. Around 40% comes from the fishing industry, and consists of ropes, ghost nets, fishing line etc. We also find lots metal, glass, gasoline, medicine, oil, and we've even found space technology!
