FOOP Gives Back
FOOP Supports Removing Plastic From The World’s Oceans
For every gallon we sell, FOOP will donate $1 to support the Ocean Cleanup Project
Plastic pollution in the world’s oceans is one of the biggest environmental issues of our time, impacting more than 600 marine species. Plastic pollution not only impacts sea life, it also carries toxic pollutants into our food chain. Think about that the next time you have tuna or shrimp; you may also be eating microplastics.
The Ocean Cleanup Project is designing and developing cleaning systems to clean up what is already polluting our oceans and to intercept plastic on its way to the ocean.
A significant percentage of the plastics that enter the oceans drift into large systems of circulating ocean currents, also known as Gyres. The largest and most infamous collection of plastic and other garbage in the ocean is called the Great Pacific Ocean Patch. The patch covers 1.6 million square kilometers and contains an estimated 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic weighing 80,000 metric tons.
The Ocean Cleanup Project has set a goal of removing 50% of that plastic and other trash in the next 5 years – and we want to do our part to make that happen.
To help combat this oceanic crisis, we will donate $1 to The Ocean Cleanup Project every time we sell 1 gallon of FOOP. We invite you to join us in helping to save the ocean, one plant and one piece of plastic at a time.
