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.
Shipping cost + do you ship to my country?
Yes, we ship CleanSea bracelets to all countries in the world, + all deliveries are free of charge and carbon neutral ;)

Where do we do cleanups?
We do cleanups along Sweden's west coast, mostly in Bohuslän. The west coast of Sweden is a "High Impact Area" for ocean plastic, because of ocean currents that bring plastic here from all over the world. 80% of the plastic washing up in Bohuslän comes from other countries than Sweden.
How do you remove ocean trash?
CleanSea removes 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 save marine life from being harmed by trash on the ocean floor too.
What happens to the ocean trash you remove?
The trash we remove on our cleanups is taken care of by Swedish authorities. Some of it is recycled in a facility specialized in recycling ocean trash. This way the trash we collect can prevent new materials from being produced, saving natural resources and decreasing CO2 emissions. What can't be recycled is burned for energy.
What types of ocean trash do you remove?
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 and oil clumps.
Are deliveries of CleanSea bracelets carbon neutral?
Yes, we're proud to say that all deliveries of CleanSea bracelets are carbon neutral! We calculate the carbon emissions from the delivery, and CO2 neutralise all of our deliveries through Running Tide. Running Tide moves carbon in the ocean from the fast cycle to the slow cycle, using kelp. They do this with biodegradable buoys in the ocean, with kelp seeds. As the kelp grows, it absorbs carbon and becomes heavier and heavier. After 3 months the buoy breaks down, and the kelp sinks to the ocean floor 1 000+ meters below the surface. The kelp along with the carbon it has absorbed is eaten by deep sea creatures, or sinks all the way into the bottom sediment. And in the depths, that carbon will be stored for thousands of years.
