Our strategy consists of:
- Educating and raising awareness by engaging businesses, schools, governments, communities and individuals in health and economic issues and solutions related to marine plastic pollution.
- Preventing plastic from reaching waterways and the ocean by diverting waste at point source.
- Cleaning up the global ocean by implementing Regenerative Technologies, Integrative Design and a Therapeutic Process* to marine plastic cleanup operations.
*Inspired by: Small Planet – Big Thinking. Concordia University.
UpGyres advocates that cleaning up marine plastic waste does not justify unnecessary and irresponsible proliferation and manufacturing, or careless disposal of single-use plastics.
