WE FROM ONE EARTH – ONE OCEAN ARE PEOPLE, WHO WANT TO ACTIVELY ESTABLISH A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT
With our “marine litter cleanup” concept we pursue the aim of freeing waters from plastic, oil and chemicals globally.
Goals of the Association
The environmental organization One Earth – OneOcean e.V. (OEOO) deals with the protection of the environment, in particular the water and coastal protection.
It has set itself the goal of developing and implementing a concept, as water bodies worldwide can be freed from plastic waste, but also oil and pollutants.
In the multi-stage concept of the “marine litter cleanup”, plastic waste is collected by special refuse collection vessels and then recycled or converted back into oil. From a ton of plastic waste, approximately 900 liters of oil could be recovered.
In addition, the association is involved in the field of oil purification, microplastics, research, education and documentation on marine littering, both nationally and internationally, in order to achieve a change in the behavior of people with regard to (plastic) waste in the medium to long term.
In 2018 One Earth – One Ocean e.V has become an official partner of the UN Environment #CleanSeas campaign.UN Environment launched #CleanSeas in February 2017, with the aim of engaging governments, the general public, civil society and the private sector in the fight against marine plastic litter.
