How does my CleanSea 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.

Cleanups and trash removal

Where do you we do cleanups?
We do cleanups along Swedens west coast, mostly in Bohuslän. The west coast of Sweden is a "High Impact Area" for ocean plastic, due to ocean currents that bring plastic here from all over the world. 80% of the plastic 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 removed?
The trash we remove on our cleanups is taken care of by Swedish authorities. As much as possible is recycled, and Bohuslän actually has a facility specialized recycling ocean trash. This way  the trash we collect can prevent new materials from being produced, saving natural resources and decreasing CO2 emissions.
What types of 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.
