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 the underwater world from garbage remotely. A bag of collected garbage costs 25 CZK per bag. Donate 250 CZK, 500 CZK, 1000 CZK or any other value and get a CLEAN OCEAN certificate.
Support the waste program in Pulau Banyak archipelago or Batu Katak village. Enter a standing order for the transparent account 2200885295/2010 and help us solve the waste program. Enter “WASTE PROGRAM” as the note.
Go to Sumatra for a volunteering program to experience wilderness on your own skin and help with cleaning up the garbage beaches on top of that. The program is combined with a stay in the rainforest.
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.
