The mission of Ocean Recovery Alliance is to reduce plastic pollution on land and water by creating strategic solutions for governments, industry and communities which lead to long-term, hands-on engaging business practices. Our mission is achieved through purposefully designed programs to educate, build awareness and provide solutions which inspire positive societal change at the community, national and international levels.
What is PDP?
The Plastic Disclosure Project (PDP) is working to reduce the environmental impact of the world's rising use of plastics in products and packaging.
"Solving a problem starts with knowing that you have one. Project Kaisei vividly shows how discarded plastics are clogging the ocean, causing a major problem for the planet's vital "blue heart," entangling marine life and insidiously killing as it accumulates in the food chain, from tiny plankton to great whales. Best of all, the mission highlights hope with ideas for positive action."

Cleaning the oceans will assist the marine environment and the planet's reduction in climate change effects. Therefore, supporting Project Kaisei is of immense fundamental value and importance, as is supporting similar projects which have goals to clean the planet and increase awareness for maintaining a clean environment, particularly the oceans and other running and non running waters, or nature as a whole.
Project Kaisei aims to use scientific data and results for education and public awareness aimed at bringing about real social change to halt the flow of Marine Debris into the world's oceans.
Recognized by the United Nations Environment Program, Project Kaisei was selected as one of less than ten global Climate Heroes in the lead up to the Copenhagen talks on climate change. The UNEP will be promoting Project Kaisei through their outreach and lobbying efforts as the world gets prepared for new climate change policies. Project Kaisei will be using Twitter in coordination with the UNEP to drum up global support and awareness for environmental causes. Click here for more information.
