In October 2016, the Ecoalf Foundation started the Upcycling the Oceans project in Thailand. With the support of the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the company PTT Global Chemical Public, the Ecoalf Foundation faces the challenge of replicating the initiative in this country. The aim is to get five fishermen associations, environmental NGOs, scuba diving clubs and other local entities involved in cleaning up the beaches. So far, we’ve identified the locations where the experience will take place. Furthermore, meetings have been held with several companies that will process the waste, transform it into pellets then thread, and finally produce the fabrics.

8 million tons

of waste end up in the

oceans every year

On September 1st 2017, the first official event took place in the island of SAMED. It kicked off with 100 divers, 300 volunteers and the key leader’s presence. After 5 hours of cleaning and diving 0,7 tons of trash were collected.
