Unmasking Plastic

Only 2% of all plastic produced in the world is effectively recycled, so nearly all plastic ever created is still embedded in our air, water, and land.

But it's about more than the visible impact on our ocean: corporate producers are knowingly creating un-recyclable goods that end up in landfills and incinerators, perpetuating toxic social and ecological environments. 

SOA has partnered with the Swarovski Foundation to empower youth as leaders in addressing the plastic crisis holistically, incorporating diverse perspectives as expert voices in the Unmasking Plastic webinar series.


Seabed Mining

Deep-sea mining threatens the delicate balance of life at the depths of the ocean. SOA calls for a 10-year moratorium on any mining so that its impact can be fully understood.

We have partnered with the Oxygen Project to spread the word, and co-hosted the #DefendtheDeep virtual summit in December 2020 (video recap here.)

Check out our campaign page to sign the petition, download the social media toolkit, and share our campaign video in 5 languages.


SOA Connects

SOA Connects brings together global stakeholders of ocean health as solutionists working toward the same goal. Each event showcases incredible people using their expertise and leveraging their passion to reverse the decimation of our ocean ecosystem through innovative, impactful solutions.
