CLEAN THE OCEAN
The world’s oceans are contaminated with plastic waste, which is increasingly becoming a global environmental problem. Plastics disintegrate into microscopic particles and become part of plankton and hence the food chain. Plastic in the oceans kills plankton eating animals such as whales, turtles and manta. Now, you have a possibility to help!
WHAT DO WE DO?
Association Forest for Children gives you the opportunity to stand up to protect the ocean in the Pulau Banyak archipelago area in Sumatra, Indonesia. Hundreds of volunteers come here every year to help clean up the beaches, coasts, underwater world and coral reefs from plastic waste that we then take to the town Singkil, we donate it to families engaged in sorting and selling plastic waste to Medan, from where they continue to the recycling process and manufacturing in China.
WE NEED YOUR ENGAGEMENT AND YOUR SUPPORT
Each of you can face the problem of ocean pollution. One of the options is to support the CLEAN THE OCEAN program, which deals with cleaning the beaches and the underwater world in the Pulau Banyak archipelago, introduces waste programs to local fishing villages and transports garbage in sacks to Singkil.
HOW TO DO IT?
Help clean the beach and undersea world from garbage remotely. One bag of collected garbage is calculated at £1.00 per bag. Donate £10 , £15 , £30 or other value and get the CLEAN OCEAN certificate.
Support the waste program in the Pulau Banyak islands or batu katak village. Enter a standing order to our account Account number: 21124769 Sort code: 80-22-60 and help us solve the waste problem. Please include “WASTE PROGRAMME” in the note.
Head to Sumatra for a voluntary program to experience the wilderness firsthand and still help clean the beaches from garbage. The program is combined with a rainforest stay at green life reserve.
WHO ARE YOU HELPING THIS WAY?
Endangered animal species, such as whales, manta rays, or whale sharks, who feed on plankton, suffer from the ocean pollution the most. Moonfish and Sea Turtles are extremely vulnerable, they feed on jellyfish, which are mistaken for plastic bags floating in the ocean. If you are concerned about their fate, help clear the ocean.
