Plastic Oceans Foundation Canada was established in 2016 as a non-profit organization and a Registered Canadian Charity. It is part of a global organization with offices in the US (global headquarters, and Los Angeles), Chile, Mexico, and Europe.

Plastic Oceans Canada’s mission is to inform, inspire and incite action to solve plastic pollution through its four pillars; activism, advocacy, education and science. Plastic Oceans Canada creates change by supporting and implementing programs to clean our coastlines, advocate for Canadian businesses to take impactful steps towards eliminating their plastic footprint, educating the public on plastic pollution to achieve behaviour change, and creating community involvement with its BlueCommunities program.

Annually, over 300 million tons of plastic is produced around the world and unfortunately, more than 90% of that plastic is not recycled. Distressingly enough, much of that plastic ends up in our oceans with at least 8 million tons of plastic being dumped into the ocean each year. While plastic has become pervasive in our environment and homes, there are changes each of us can make to improve the situation.

Together, we can create a healthier ocean for a healthier you.
