What we do

All life on earth depends on a healthy ocean. But the ocean is suffering under human activity. We aim to promote ocean conservation.
We work every day to clean beaches, raise awareness and educate people.

Our activities

Why are we special?

There are many groups that regularly collect trash. Mostly, these are campaigns by wealthy citizens in industrialized nations who clean up their cities. We enable clean-ups where they are most needed and least likely to take place – in poor countries in cooperation with people living in poverty. In this way, we combine environmental protection with poverty reduction.

There are plenty of other companies that collect waste in developing countries. These are mostly profit-oriented companies. We are a non-profit organization. We strive to maximize environmental protection. The fate of the association is decided by the members.

It is the rainy season in Cameroon at the moment. Every day, the water masses carry countless plastic bottles out of the villages. They then accumulate at bridges and narrow points in the rivers. Our Sana Mare collection team in Cameroon could collect many tons of plastic every day. Once one part of the river is cleared of plastic, it only takes a few hours for the plastic flood to take over again.

It costs about 100€ to carry out a clean-up. The costs are for materials, travel costs, food, allowances, waste disposal fees, etc. The collected waste is picked up by local recycling companies or the local waste disposal company.
Our project is financed by donations. If you would also like to donate to help us fight the plastic flood in rivers and oceans, please click on www.sana-mare.org/spenden . Every Euro helps!!!
Thank you very much 👋

The collection of two months of river and town clean-ups in Limuru (Central Kenya) can be seen in this picture. Our collection team. Goes on tour 10 times a month in the area. The rivers and streets in this poor area of Africa are full of garbage. Mainly plastic bottles are found.

Poverty and environmental pollution are closely related. A clean environment is a luxury good that we can only afford if vital needs such as food, housing, health and education are secured. Fighting poverty is therefore an important part of sustainable environmental protection.

As part of our social clean-up program, we create jobs for people living in extreme poverty. In this way, we combat poverty and environmental pollution at the same time.
The collected waste is later sold to recycling companies. We also look for ways to recycle some of the waste ourselves. However, the income from the sale of recyclable materials cannot cover the project costs by far. We are therefore dependent on donations in order to be able to carry out the program in the long term. Please become a supporter of the association with a regular or one-time donation.
With every euro donated, we collect an average of 3 kg of waste.
