Our focus is to stop litter, especially plastics, getting into the sea.
All our projects use a combination of Action > Awareness > Education > Collaboration.
Education is at the heart of GreenSeas action. We believe it is fundamental to increase awareness about marine plastic litter and the steps we can all take, to combat it.
COMBATTING CIGARETTE BUTTS PLASTIC POLLUTION
Thrown into drains or left on the beach, trillions of cigarette butts made from cellulose acetate fibres (a plastic) end up in the sea and become microplastics. GreenSeas Trust focuses on reducing this toxic waste.
DEPOSIT REFUND SCHEME
GreenSeas Trust wants the UK government to legislate to adopt the deposit refund system. Making it a requirement for manufacturers and retailers to provide this service as part of their selling process.
LITTER KILLS MARINE LIFE
Way back in 2003, when marine litter was not on many people’s radar, GreenSeas Trust was forging ahead with a campaign to stop plastics getting into the sea.
