How it Works

Every day you answer the daily trivia question on Free the Ocean, you’ll have funded the removal of
one piece of plastic from the ocean. How is this possible? Well, it’s actually pretty simple…

Impact as of May, 2020:

Because of you and the Free The Ocean community, FTO has funded the removal of over 5 million pieces of plastic from the ocean and coastlines. (You can see the exact # on the counter at the top of the page).

This is a great start but there’s a lot of plastic in the ocean…with your help we can do so much more. Thank you!

How is this possible?

Every time you answer the daily trivia question, we fund the removal of one piece of plastic from the ocean/coastlines, through ad revenue generated on Free the Ocean. We directly fund our cause partner, Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii.

Who’s actually removing the plastic?

Our cause partner is Sustainable Coastlines, Hawaii, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, hard at work protecting treasured coastlines by removing plastic debris and educating the next generation on how to create a world without waste. They’re the ones actually removing the plastic from the ocean.
