IT’S TIME TO ACT !
We are two Belgian adventurers sailing around the Atlantic since mid-July 2020, in order to raise awareness on plastic pollution in the oceans. Throughout our trip we collect samples all over the Atlantic ocean in partnership with Ocean Eye, who conduct an analysis of these microplastic samples in a lab. The data generated by this research will be transmitted to the GRID department of the United Nations Environment Program and made available worldwide with its “geodata” geographic information system.
Another aspect of our project is to raise public awareness on plastic pollution in our oceans and change people’s habits. Our goal is to reach as many people as we can. Thus, we organize meetings during our trip, small gatherings / workshops with our partners, promote it on our website and our social media, and write articles along the way. Moreover, we also collaborate with local schools, launching projects with students from different grades.
DONATE TO WATCH OUR FILM
To enable us to complete our expedition by heading north (Newfoundland, Greenland, Iceland, Faroe Islands, England, Belgium) and collect unique samples of microplastic, while taking on the challenge of navigating these difficult waters, we need financial help!
For all donations of 15€ or more, we will send you a private link to watch our film about the first 15 months of the SEA THE PLASTIC expedition! Escape, adventure, sun, storm and breathtaking landscapes are guaranteed during 57min !
Go to our fundraising page to support us and enjoy our film:
Your donation will allow us to install a radar on our sailboat to navigate safely between the icebergs and to equip ourselves for the cold. And we promise you a second film that will retrace the crazy adventures we have yet to experience! Every little counts, thank you in advance for your support! Without you, we wouldn’t be able to do it!
OUR 3 GOALS
WHERE EVERYTHING STARTED
When we first met in 2016, we started dreaming of buying an old sailboat and restoring it to go on a trip around the oceans. Step by step we have built this project together. When we bought our sailboat in 2019, we realized that we didn’t “just” want to go on a sailing journey, but that we wanted to create a meaning and a sense to our project. That’s when we decided to create our project SEA THE PLASTIC EXPEDITION, a sailboat trip around the Atlantic to raise awareness about plastic pollution in the oceans.

By 2050, virtually every seabird species on the planet will be eating plastic.
