Our Story

SeaCleanse is an innovative 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, led by Brian Cameron in Chicago, that is committed to ridding the ocean of garbage and turning it into new forms of clean energy. We use advanced, environmentally-friendly methods to restore the ocean to its natural beauty and sustain our planet for future generations.

By supporting SeaCleanse in our cleanup efforts, you can help to minimize – and even reverse – the impacts of the ocean garbage crisis

Together, we can solve the problem of global ocean waste.

Our Process

Step 1

We collect ocean trash from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between California and Hawaii.

step 2

We sort and transport the waste to a zero-emission plant where it is cleaned, dried, and ground into small pellets. 

step 3

Using extremely high temperatures, the plant converts the pellets into clean-burning gas. The process creates excess heat, which is reused as a source of energy, and “Biochar”, a form of charcoal that can be used in agriculture.

With Your Help, We are Making The World a Better Place

SeaCleanse would not be possible without our dedicated team of passionate, driven, and enthusiastic people. We’re rapidly gaining momentum and are always looking for new people to join our team.

join one of our cleanup operations in the Pacific Ocean, assist in our promotional activities, or provide administrative support to help us organize and launch new projects.  You can support our cause and improve the ocean’s health.  We encourage you to sign up and become a part of the Seacleanse revolution. 

Our mission & approch

Why Clean The Ocean

Some quick facts about ocean waste:

 

– Around 18 billion pounds of plastic enter the ocean every year making it a garbage patch.

– Plastic accounts for approximately 75 percent of all ocean waste.

– About 70 percent of all ocean garbage lies under the surface, making it invisible to the naked eye.

– Ocean waste has accumulated into five major garbage islands around the world, the largest of which is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in the Pacific Ocean located between Hawaii and California.

– Ocean plastic gradually breaks down into microplastics which contaminate the ocean water and pose a deadly risk to marine life, killing around 100,000 marine animals and one million birds every year.

Help Us Fix The Global Ocean Waste Problem
One Ton At A Time.

A Letter from the founder

Oceans cover almost 71% of the earth and it is one of the primary sources of life on the planet. More than one-third of all people on earth live within 60 miles of a coastline, and around one billion people rely on the ocean as their primary source of food. The ocean also plays a critical role in regulating our environment, absorbing almost a third of human-made carbon emissions every year, and supporting billions of marine plants and animals.

However, over the last five decades, human activity has created significant pollution in the ocean, contaminating it with household and commercial waste, microplastics, and harmful chemicals.

As of today Around 18 billion pounds of plastic enter the ocean every year, and out of this, 270,000 tons of plastic float on the water’s surface. The rest of the garbage lies under the surface, making it invisible to the naked eye. Ocean waste has accumulated into five major garbage islands around the world, the largest of which is the Great Pacific Garbage Patch located between Hawaii and California.

It is our responsibility to do something about this, and if we don’t start now, it will soon affect our ecosystems, health, economies for centuries and the ocean might turn up as a huge garbage island.

We’re on a mission and I need your help. join our cause in any way that you can – whether by offering a one-time or recurring donation, volunteering in one of our cleanup projects in the Pacific Ocean, or assisting us in our promotional and administrative efforts.
Together, we can solve the problem of global ocean waste.
