Transforming Plastic Pollution to Clean the Oceans

Recovering plastic pollution that affects the living environment of marine organisms benefits our beaches, fisheries, tourism and sea food source. This is vitally necessary and very possible.

UpGyres is:

      1. Creating plastic harvesting equipment, technology and methodology to remove micro, meso and macro plastic waste from the high-seas.
      2. Developing methods to intercept plastic fibres at source points such as laundry effluent before they reach the ocean.
      3. Implementing ways to turn marine plastic pollution into resources and revenue streams to make cleaning the oceans financially sustainable.
