Collectes déchets Initiatives Océanes
Organize a clean-up with the Ocean initiatives ! 


Ocean initiatives are a Surfrider Foundation Europe program to fight the marine litter issue through education, community science and lobbying. This includes beach, ocean, lake and river bank clean-ups all over the world. These litter collections are organized by volunteers with the support of Surfrider Foundation Europe.

Why organize an Ocean Initiative :

  • An Ocean Initiative is a practical action to protect the environment while enjoying time with family, friends or new acquaintances.
  • Taking part in an Ocean Initiative helps to make people aware of the marine litter issue, using the educational tools provided by Surfrider.
  • Ocean Initiatives allow Surfrider to influence laws and reduce waste at the source through volunteer monitoring and data collected on waste.
