The Ocean Cleanup
Why do we want to protect our oceans?
People need air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat, new medicines, a climate we can live in, beauty, inspiration, and recreation. We need to know that we belong to something bigger than ourselves. We want a better future for those we care about. To survive and prosper, we need healthy oceans.
The ocean is the largest ecosystem on Earth, it is the planet’s life support system. Oceans generate half of the oxygen we breathe and, at any given moment, they contain more than 97% of the world’s water. Oceans provide at least a sixth of the animal protein people eat. Living oceans absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce climate change impacts. The diversity and productivity of the world’s oceans are a vital interest in humankind. Our security, our economy, our very survival all require healthy oceans.
