Our strategy consists of:
-Educate and raise awareness by engaging businesses, schools, governments, communities, and individuals in health and economic issues and marine plastic pollution solutions.
-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 recovery operations.
*Inspired by Small Planet – Big Thinking. Concordia University.
UpGyres advocates that recovering marine plastic waste does not justify unnecessary manufacturing, irresponsible proliferation and careless disposal of disposable-single-use plastics.
