As part of its commitment to giving back to people and the planet, Goood has recently announced sales of its sustainable seafood range will be donated to this vital ocean conservation charity.
For every 1kg of Goood product sold, the charity will remove 2kg of plastic out of the ocean. With more than 150 million tons of plastic already found in the world’s oceans, and with over 10 million tons more added each year, One Earth One Ocean is on a mission to remove and recycle plastic clogging up our seas and rivers.
The charity uses three vessels to remove this ocean plastic: the Sea Hamster, which cleans inland waters and rivers; the SeeKuh (or Sea Cow), which can collect two tons of plastic waste per trip, reaching plastic up to four meters deep; and the SeeElefant (Sea Elephant), which takes all the waste collected by the SeeKuh with onboard cranes.
The charity collects this ocean plastic, which is then recycled or concerted back into oil. Approximately 900 liters of oil can be recovered from one ton of plastic. The organization is also involved in oil purification, microplastics, research, education and documentation on marine littering in order to encourage positive behavior change when it comes to plastic use.
GooodUK Director Hugo Griffiths commented, “Plastic pollution is a huge problem affecting our planet, and charities such as One Earth One Ocean are vital for safeguarding our oceans for future generations. We’re proud to be working with this brilliant organization to help clean up ocean plastic and help our oceans to thrive.”
As well as working with One Earth One Ocean, GooodUK also undertakes a number of other initiatives including supporting the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, taking part in a number of afforestation projects, and launching a world-first materially recyclable packaging. GooodUK is set to announce further charity partnerships with organizations also dedicated to protecting the planet.
