"However fragmented the world, however intense the national rivalries, it is an inexorable fact that we become more interdependent every day. I believe that national sovereignties will shrink in the face of universal interdependence. The sea, the great unifier, is man's only hope. Now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning: We are all in the same boat." - Jacques Cousteau

In keeping with company efforts to achieve sustainable growth and to develop a comprehensive approach to detoxifying our oceans, Ocean Detox is currently in talks over a variety of projects with many environmental and oceanic organizations. If you or your organization are interested in teaming up with Ocean Detox please contact us. We are open to a breath of projects. Come Share With Us…One Ocean, One Dream.


Ocean Detox has teamed up with the Algalita Marine Research Foundation (AMRF) to assist in bringing about awareness to the issues of waste plastic and cleaning up our oceans. With over 10 years of research and the scrutiny of colleagues at universities and laboratories all over the globe, AMRF is recognized as the authoritative source for data pertaining to plastics and their effects on our oceans. Ocean Detox is currently working in collaboration with AMRF in order to find, and provide, a solution to the variety of deadly problems that plastic debris cause. AMRF has truly been an inspiration and a great resource for Ocean Detox. Their passion and commitment to cleaning up our oceans is unparalleled. We are proud to be a part of the team as AMRF makes their 6 week, 2000 miles voyage across the Pacific from Long Beach to Hawaii on 15,000 plastic bottles.

A team from Algalita Marine Research Foundation has constructed a boat made entirely of recycled junk. Old boats, fishing nets, plastic bottles, even part of an old airplane were all used in the construction of “Junk”. The AMRF team has been busy preparing this “Junk ” for a sea adventure from Long Beach to Hawaii. The purpose here is really quite simple. The boat attracts quite a bit of attention because of its unique design. The "Junk" is a 20ft. recycled plastic raft. Over 15,000 plastic bottles have been used to make “Junk” float. The boat will depart from the Aquarium of the Pacific (AoP) to set sail on a 60 day adventure to Hawaii in order to raise awareness about plastic marine debris on Sunday June 1, 2008. Join us for the send off party from 2-3pm PST at the AoP. Check out http://junkraft.blogspot.com/ to follow the voyage of the "Junk". Be a part of the movement and the future and share with us…one ocean, one dream.

Good Luck Marcus and Joel! Ocean Detox will see you in Hawaii!
