About SAME oceans


We are in love with our planet!

Traveling the world has shown us the most incredible nature and the most breathtaking landscapes – but it has also shown us the pollution that suffocates our beautiful home planet.

As oceanlovers, surfers, divers and general waterhippies we are especially shocked by the amount of plastic which is polluting our marine environment and killing millions of animals every year.

Our vision: Plastic-free Oceans

We believe that – together with YOUR help – we still have the chance to turn the tide on this issue. And we know that we need to act NOW! It is all of us who are responsible for this disaster, so it needs to be us who solve the problem – all together!

Because it doesn’t matter if you are at the Mediterranean Sea, the Pacific Ocean or the Antarctic: in the end it is all the same water, the SAME oceans. And everyone should start protecting them.

Why? So All May Enjoy.

Shells, not plastic!
