How Can You Help?
Ocean Recovery Alliance is a non-profit organization focused on bringing new technologies, innovation, ideas and collaborations to improve the health of our ocean. Our projects are both global and local in nature, and we welcome donations of any size in order to keep our projects alive. Our two Clinton Global Initiative commitments, aimed at reducing plastic pollution on a global level, were the first of their type which any company or country could use immediately, without the need for bans, taxes or legislative changes. These were way ahead of the world's broad awareness of plastic pollution (as they were announced in 2010), but are highly relevant today, now that people are interested in mitigating the problem, and beginning to engage in the creation of a circular economy. These projects are our Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP), and our Global Alert platform/app. Each are powerful enabling platforms which can be used by any stakeholders/institutions in any community in order to help them address, and solve, some of the local issues that might exist vis-a-vis plastic waste. We also founded and run one of the only business conferences, which solely focuses on innovations and solutions for plastic in its 2nd life, so there is no waste footprint, the Plasticity Forum. This was first launched at the Rio+20 Earth Summit, and has been held in 13 global cities since then, with the latest having been with United Nations Environment (UNEP) and their Sea of Solutions Conference in Bangkok, 2019.
