Remove ~6.6 Lbs of Ocean Plastic
Help clean up the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch”
In partnership with Dollar Donation Club, the Ocean Voyages Institute runs mid-ocean expeditions to track and remove “ghost net” plastic--the most lethal form of ocean plastic. In 2020, Ocean Voyages Institute removed over 340,000 lbs of ocean plastic--breaking the world record. In 2021, they aim to remove over 1,000,000 lbs to break the record again (with your help!).
Ghost nets are abandoned fishing gear that kill an estimated 650,000 marine animals every year by entanglement. It’s also estimated that as much as half of all ocean plastic is fishing related.
