Think Ocean works to tackle the plastic crisis after one of its original founders witnessed first-hand the impact of plastic on the oceans, its inhabitants, and the effect on human populations.

It campaigns for a reduction in plastic use and aims to increase community awareness, working with governments and local authorities to ensure improved plastic waste management systems are put in place.

It also works collaboratively with private, public, non-profit and community sectors towards a circular economy, which allows the reuse of plastic waste, while also stimulating local economies through the production of both necessary and in-demand items.

It has worked on numerous projects over the years, from rescuing whales and setting up sanctuaries, to clean-ups, research and expeditions. Its core mission is saving natural resources and transforming ecosystems and economies.
