Learn more about the Ocean Ambassadors

From a deep love of playing and working on the ocean The Ocean Ambassadors was formed. With the direct goal to provide a mobile educational platform to “Create Jobs, Close Landfills and Anchor Renewable Energy Systems” following Eco Soul’s Green Island Project.

After passing through many locations while collaborating with local NGO’s and scientists we found education was not enough.

Ocean Ambassadors has worked towards full-scale implementations and project management roles, to see through the programs and technologies we advocate become a reality.

We are interested in an achievable plastics framework that endorses a vision of materials reentering the economy; collate waste recovery solutions; and spread these concepts throughout the pacific region.

Currently focusing on waste plastic remediation, we provide:

  • Hands on demonstrations converting waste plastics to alternative fuels
  • Commercial scale local processing capabilities
  • Provide detailed educational resources
  • Assist and direct community outreach
  • Consult on and implement achievable recycling practice
  • Closed loop up-cycling budgets and proposals
  • Low cost research vessel S.V. Moana

This team is now in Fiji building a scalable model for other island nations to replicate. With the goal of minimizing plastic pollution on all fronts and offer local processing facilities for economic and environmental sustainability.

With the success of this program we aim to offer this intellectual property for other nations who choose to take the responsible steps and work together for a clean ocean!

Since its inception Ocean Ambassadors has been involved in a variety of projects which are highlighted here:
