At the heart of ocean-i™ lies our deep love for nature and our yearning to protect and restore it. For us, the hashtag #plasticfreeriversandoceans is not merely a slogan, it is both our inspiration and our goal. We are true #oceanlovers with a desire to create real #oceanimpact, and to make you, our customer, part of that #dreamcometrue
During 2020, through our social enterprise Sunshine Cleaning, we inspired over 120 volunteers from the Bluedowns community and several likeminded commercial partners, to work together and prevent approximately 2 tonnes of plastic and other waste from entering the ocean. The two canal clean-ups were conducted along the canal running through Bluedowns in Cape Town. The canal flows into the Eerste River at Macassar and into False Bay and has been identified by The Ocean Clean-up as 1 of the 1000 most plastic polluted canal/river systems on the planet.
