The Story of CleanSea

CleanSea was started by twins Lukas and Mikaela Julher in 2019. Since we were kids we've spent our summers with our family along the west coast of Sweden. We've been swimming in the salty ocean. We've fished for crabs, mackerel and clams. Gone diving to explore all the fascinating marine life. And we've of course been on walks along the beautiful Bohuslän coastline. It's easy to say, the ocean has a special place in our hearts.

But on one of these walks we found a bay in Ramsvikslandet, full of plastic. Plastic bottles, bags, ropes, discarded fishing nets and plastic packaging in all shapes, sizes and colors. Thousands of pieces. 

And so CleanSea was born.

If there's this much plastic in one single bay, how much is there in the rest of the ocean?

We learned that every hour, 5 bath tubs of plastic washes up in Bohuslän. 94% of seabirds in the North sea have plastic in their stomachs, and millions of marine animals die every year... And by 2050, we're expected to have more plastic than fish in the ocean.

In short, we're losing our oceans. But these twins wouldn't give up the ocean we love that easy. And so CleanSea was born.

Our mission

CleanSea’s goal is to make an impact for marine animals and create a future of our oceans full of life, not plastic. We do this by removing this harmful trash from the ocean. CleanSea cleans the coastline, the ocean floor, the surface and even islands - removing every single piece of plastic, fishing gear and trash we possibly can!

We fund the CleanSea project through the sales of our CleanSea bracelets, and pull 1 kilo of trash from the ocean for every CleanSea bracelet purchased.
