We're all connected.
All living things are inextricably interconnected, and it is every human’s responsibility to leave the planet a better place for future generations. You can help by making small, easy changes that, in the aggregate, can have a big impact on our environment.
An estimated 17.6 billion pounds of plastic enters into the marine environment from land-based sources every year – roughly equivalent to dumping a garbage truck full of plastic into the oceans every minute.
Solving the plastics problem in our oceans will ultimately take concerted action from companies, governments and advocates like you. Reduce your intake of single-use plastic, recycle when possible, and support companies that offer eco-responsible alternatives.
Oceana is the largest international advocacy organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation. Oceana is rebuilding abundant and biodiverse oceans by winning science-based policies in countries that control one third of the world’s wild fish catch. With more than 200 victories that stop over-fishing, habitat destruction, pollution and killing of threatened species like turtles and sharks, Oceana’s campaigns are delivering results.
Partnership with a Purpose
Dropps is partnering with Oceana to educate consumers on the impact of their actions and choices, and encourage them to care about the massive global plastic pollution crisis.
Andy Sharpless, CEO of Oceana
“Plastic is everywhere in our ocean – floating on the surface, mixing in the saltwater, and sitting on the ocean bottom, miles and miles deep. And it’s no secret that the household consumer goods category contributes to the problem. Dropps is showing that companies can address this issue now and reduce throwaway plastic by giving people real plastic-free choices. We face a tsunami of plastic in our future, unless more companies also take meaningful action.”
