We are

an NGO of passionate surfers and world explorers cleaning beaches and recycling plastic so it doesn't end up in our oceans.

We currently have trash-collection barrels on busy beaches on the west-coast of Denmark and now do serious beach cleanings in Sri Lanka with the help of our new Sri Lanka team.

The plastic we collect is cleaned and recycled into cool products you can buy as a way to support our efforts, just check out the shop to support our efforts.

 

The Sri Lanka clean-up

Sri Lanka is just one of many developing countries with inadequate waste management systems resulting in hundreds of tons of plastic entering the ocean every year.

Our new Sri Lankan team has cleared more than a ton of trash from several beaches and more beach cleanings are planned.

You can help our beach cleaning project in Sri Lanka by preordering our 100% ocean plastic iPhone from the shop.

The story behind

Pure Oceans is an NGO founded by Michael Keller and Lillan Spiertz both passionate surfers and world travellers with a special love for beaches.

As former residents of Hawaii we experienced first hand how plastic from the Pacific ocean would wash up on the beaches and destroy marine life - not even the most secluded islands on the globe would go untouched by plastic pollution.

When we travelled the world we would find plastic polluted beaches in every country visited.

On Bali we would littereally catch more plastic than fish when we went fishing.

During a beach walk on Sri Lanka we would look at the amounts of trash we passed wondering what it would take for someone to just pick it up and get  a clean beach and cleaner ocean. That gave us the idea to recycle plastic trash to fund beach cleanings and Pure Oceans was founded.
