The Seabin Foundation is dedicated to ocean health, with an emphasis on marine plastics litter prevention and education through data analysis, science, and community engagement using the Seabin technology. We are working towards turning off the tap to plastics entering our waterways because, if you cannot turn off the tap, how will we ever clean up the mess?
The issue of ocean plastics is on a scale that one person or group cannot solve alone, so we need your help.
The Seabin Foundation believes that education is the first step to lasting and effective solutions. With marine litter, children can play a direct and significant role in reducing the sheer amount entering the oceans. Every child who learns to dispose of trash properly can be one less “source” person littering and they have the potential to spread the word to friends and family, amplifying the effect.
We are passionate about working toward marine debris litter prevention through our citizen science program involving volunteers doing data collection. We generate data reports on a quarterly basis to inform various stakeholders and communities about the pollution found in Seabins. The data collection and analysis are done mostly in the Seabin City Programs and at the Ocean Health Microplastic Lab. Excursions and STEM lessons are available for all age groups, to learn about Seabins and what they collect from harbours and waterways.
