Be a monthly donor

Your monthly donation saves lives every day, every month, all year long. Make the world a better place by supporting us monthly.

Before, during, and after

As a monthly donor, you ensure that we will do all we can to be on-site before, during, and after a catastrophe. Your donations as a monthly donor will allow us to continue our work both preventively and in emergency situations, on the ground and in the sea.

Support your ocean monthly

You get what you give
When you become a monthly donor, you support the fight to reduce harmful ocean plastics – every
month, all year round. Some call it karma, others call it a law of nature. Why not just call it common sense?

Support us
as a volunteer

The second best,
yet most efficient way
to complete the task

The very best way to get rid of plastic waste in our environment is to clean it yourself, repeatedly every month. For most of us, however, that’s not the most convenient method. The second best way is to sponsor dedicated volunteers who do all the work for you on a monthly basis. You are automatically charged for your support each month from your account. As a result, you automatically save lives and contribute to a better world. Bit by bit, day by day, every month.

Recycle today
for a better tomorrow
This is how your donation is being used

The success of our efforts would not have been possible without the support of our fantastic members.
81% percent of your donation goes directly to OceanLives programs to reduce ocean plastics and increase public awareness of plastic consumption and recycling.

The global share of ocean waste
Together towards Agenda 2030®

UN’s Sustainability Goals represent the most ambitious agenda for sustainable development ever agreed upon. To reach the goals, all actors in society must contribute. OceanLive has chosen to focus on goal 14.1 “Oceans and marine environments” out of the 17 sustainability goals. We won’t stop until we’re proud!

OceanLIve works to develop innovative solutions and effective techniques to investigate and restore polluted ocean areas and increase knowledge about the reuse of plastic waste. We see a future with major global societal challenges around the packaging industry and plastic recycling. OceanLIve’s vision is to be an independent expert organization and an international competence center in the future. Our business is interdisciplinary and aims for a safe, efficient and sustainable use of plastic.

There is not enough commitment and effort in this area from governments, authorities, and business. Their influence are highly relevant in this context and are of great importance for the future achievement of the goals of Agenda 2030.

The problems with plastic-polluted oceans, and its consequences for people and the environment, occur in almost all countries around the world. The plastic waste in our oceans is expected to have serious consequences for large parts of our oceans. In order to build up society’s resilience against extreme environmental disasters, it is required that authorities and the business community take greater account of increasing production, consumption and environmental burdens.

The goal of OceanLIve’s efforts is to contribute to an integrated and sustainable development of watercourses and coastal areas where the needs and rights of poor and marginalized groups are taken into account. In this way, we can contribute to preventing and reducing plastic pollution in the sea and protect marine and coastal ecosystems.

The ability of meeting the global goals in Agenda 2030 is strengthened by more actors taking part in the knowledge and being able to apply it and spread it on to other actors. The process has a big impact today since OceanLive has a great deal of responsibility in spreading new knowledge and new methods to the public through targeted knowledge transfer to vulnerable regions.

Bit by bit.
Hand by hand.
Bottle by bottle.

Plastic accumulating in our oceans and on our beaches has become a global crisis beyond what we could imagine. Billions of plastic waste can be found that makes up about 40 percent of the world’s ocean surfaces. To day there is only one way to clean it up effectively and sustainable – by hand. The more hands we are – the less ocean plastic.
