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!

Supporting our cause for plasticfree oceans

A special Thanks to...

...wonderful people that helped to build SAMEoceans



SAMEoceans was founded in May 2019 by Johanna Maul and Daniel Bläcker as a non-profit ocean conservation organization in Hamburg. With all their passion and energetic work during numerous weekend and night shifts, Johanna and Daniel laid the foundation for what SAMEoceans is today. They developed a sustainable business model, defined services and products, set up processes and organizational structures, built a team of over 20 volunteers, planned awareness projects in Asia, clarified legal issues and identified partners, suppliers as well as potential customers.  
After the conceptual phase was largely completed, Daniel handed over the management to Johanna in order to turn to new projects.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank cheerful Daniel, who was always helpful, supportive and a great motivator for the team. We are so grateful for the heart and valuable energy he put into this initiative and wish him all the best for his future projects!
