ClosedLoop CleanUps

VOLUNTOURISM BY THE SEA.

Our beach and underwater clean-ups come with a 100% guarantee that the plastic waste you pick up doesn’t go back to the ocean.

We’ve been practicing closed loop cleanups with our partner resort since we started.

What’s a closed loop cleanup?

It’s a cleanup where all the waste isn’t just collected from the beach or underwater. It’s also segregated, then processed for its environmentally-appropriate endpoint. Recyclables are sent to the recyclers. Special wastes are picked up by the LGU. Traditionally non-recyclable plastics are washed & dried in preparation for upcycling.

Organize real impact

We can organize a closed-loop cleanup for your organization or company. It’s  a fun day of voluntourism for at least a group of 10. We usually start with a talk on the Marine Plastic Litter problem, which also explains why we do our cleanups this way. And depending on the package you pick, it can include a trip to a white beach cove, snorkeling or scuba diving, and topping the day off at the pool.

WHERE YOU CAN CLEANUP.

Balayan Bay, Verde

Island Passage

Planet Dive resort has been our partner & base in the Verde Island Passage, right from the start.

We developed the ClosedLoop process with their help, and set up our collection facility there.

It’s also a convenient jump-off point for exploring Verde Island Passage & its wealth of marine life. In fact, there’s a marine sanctuary you can check out right in front of the resort, once we’re done with the cleanup!

We offer hands-on learning sessions for the machines, classes for specific upcycling skills, volunteer activities for organizations, as well as week-long deep dives like Design Thinking for Marine Plastic Litter, which takes you from an understanding of the problem, all the way to prototyping & marketing your solution.

Your preferred place

We can also just guide you through a ClosedLoop Cleanup, sending a representative to give the talk & help you through the process.

We can also assist in making sure your collected waste goes to the environmentally-appropriate endpoints.
