With our ocean conservation projects...

... we free beaches and mangroves
from ocean plastic ...
Pro Ocean | Mangroven sind sensible Ökosysteme und durch Ozeanplastik bedroht.

We collect everything that does not belong in nature - from ocean plastic to electronic waste. It is then sorted, recycled and reused in an environmentally friendly way. In this way, we conserve resources, reduce CO2 & protect the environment.

... provide a social and
fair impact ...
Pro Ocean | faire Jobs

Only fair jobs can make a real difference on the ground. That is why our collection team in the Philippines is permanently employed and has health insurance.

... and focus on environmental
education for children.

Environmental education is the key to solving the plastic problem. Because education and environmental protection are directly linked. We are launching educational projects for children - in the Philippines and in Germany.
