Why we love it?

Scientific research is the best way to measure the impact of pollution, and therefore to encourage its reduction. By contributing to its funding, we can effectively combat pollution and its consequences.

Challenge

Decontamination
The ocean is the largest space available to life on Earth. Yet 250 kg of plastic is dumped into it every second. Plastics and microplastics are a real scourge for the environment, having a real impact on wildlife. Many species are poisoned by ingesting microplastics every day.

Pure Ocean prioritizes critical environmental issues with one overriding criterion: impact.

The aim is to prevent 300,000 liters of waste from ending up in the ocean while funding research programs.

Solution

Through La Goutte Bleue kits (a 30-liter Made in France collection bag made from seaweed), Pure Ocean funds scientific research projects on ocean protection.

The ocean is damaged by plastic pollution but also by other pollution, overfishing, global warming and other scourges.

Pure Ocean funds research programs to preserve marine life and innovate solutions to these problems. In 4 years, 22 scientific projects have been supported.

Pure Ocean call for projects: an exceptional mobilization!
The scientific projects supported by Pure Ocean are selected through an annual international call for projects. Closing on November 15, 2023, the latest call for projects attracted the exceptional mobilization of researchers around the world, with a total of 173 projects submitted, more than double the number from the previous year. This increase once again testifies to the growing need for ocean research funding.

The 4 major themes of the Pure Ocean Challenges, aligned with the United Nations' 10 Ocean Decade Challenges, were largely covered, with - of note - a very large number of innovative projects on plastic pollution. The Pure Ocean scientific committee is currently evaluating the proposals before the winners are announced on March 21, 2024.

The money will be used for

The funds raised will be used to fund new research projects, linked to the fight against pollution. This research can lead to solutions with a positive impact on ocean health, and therefore also on human health.
