Crowdfunding for a clean North Sea

02 April 2015

Last week we launched our first crowdfunding campaign, targeting the Netherlands and Belgium. With this campaign we aim to crowdfund 15.000 euros in 60 days via donations. The goal is to clean the North Sea from as many fishing nets as possible, but at least 10 tons.

People who donate receive a unique reward, which goes from a pair of Healthy Seas socks to joining one of our diving trips. With this campaign we also hope to promote Healthy Seas in order to increase awareness about marine litter and ghost fishing.

Please visit our crowdfunding webpage, donate, and receive cool products made from recycled fishing nets!
