Plastic Clean-up

There’s more than 150 million tons of plastic lying around the ocean today. Our plastic consumption and poor waste management add 11 million tons per year to this grand total. Can’t really picture it? Imagine a truckload full of plastic getting dumped into the ocean each minute! Plastic waste can lead to severe biodiversity loss and negative human health impacts.

Why Seven Clean Seas?

SCS started in 2018 with the mission of preserving the marine environment by ridding the ocean of plastic for good. Their purpose is to clean, conserve, and educate. SCS has recovered +300,000 kg of plastic pollution and is focusing on infrastructure and technology solutions to stop plastic keep reaching the ocean.

Seven Clean Seas team in action

What is SCS doing?

The project’s objective is to develop an efficient plastic collection and sorting infrastructure in Bintan, Indonesia, and to recover mixed plastics via community / business collections, environmental interception and marine environment recovery. A Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) will be used to ensure plastics are diverted from the struggling landfill and ultimately recirculated into the circular economy via recycling where possible and secondary co-processing solutions where necessary.

Not only are oceans being cleaned up with infrastructure plans, but lives are also being changed. Cleaning up the oceans enables ethical employment to the most vulnerable communities. SCS offers ethical wages and health insurance, contrasting the waste management industry where informal employment, lack of security and protection are common practices.

SCS also builds community engagement ecosystems to encourage local stakeholder interaction and stewardship of the environment with the goal of reducing primary plastic leakage into the environment. For example, there are educational workshops such as the Educational Experiences Project, that offers a unique opportunity to engage local schools around the topics of conservation, marine plastic prevention and technological solutions.
