A GLOBAL ALLIANCE TO END MARINE PLASTIC POLLUTION
The Parley Global Cleanup Network is an alliance of organizations taking direct action against marine plastic pollution. Our cleanup collaborations remove plastic waste from beaches, remote islands, rivers, mangroves and high seas, and intercept ocean-bound plastics in coastal communities.
Together with our partners, we respond to plastic emergencies, raise awareness, and develop and implement programs that can help end the cycle of pollution long-term. Parley cleanup collaborators and volunteers share our vision for solutions and champion the Parley AIR Strategy:
AVOID PLASTIC WHEREVER POSSIBLE
INTERCEPT PLASTIC WASTE
REDESIGN THE MATERIAL ITSELF
Every country faces a unique set of challenges in responding to plastic pollution and related ocean threats. Partnering with local NGOs, government and state agencies, private businesses, waste management and logistical partners, marine experts and educational institutions allows us to work with the strengths of each community and approach solutions from all angles. Our goal is to be active in every country with a coastline by 2024.
A beach cleanup is a powerful tool for raising awareness, collecting data and removing immediate threats to sea life and human health. But to end marine plastic pollution for good, solutions are needed at the sources of pollution. Therefore, in addition to cleanups, plastic waste interception and recycling programs, initiatives of the Parley Global Cleanup Network aim to educate and empower communities and especially youth to participate in creating change.
