PHILANTHROPIC COMMITMENT

It’s time to take action!

The ocean is our passion, but it is also our future.

Eight million tonnes of plastic are currently being dumped in the ocean every year. Just 12 countries are responsible for 50% of the ocean’s plastic pollution. If we don’t take action now, by 2050 the ocean will contain 1 tonne of plastic for every tonne of fish (Ellen MacArthur Foundation).

This project came about in 2016 when I met with the famous sailor and ocean adventurer Yvan Bourgnon.

When he told me about his project – the Sea Cleaners – I said to him: you’re crazy for coming up with a project like this, but I’m even crazier because I’m going to help you.
