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
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!
Baseco Beach, Manila Bay
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.
