The ecoSPIRITS Oceans Program

The ecoSPIRITS Oceans Program complements the ecoSPIRITS Forest Program for island nations that are most at risk from rising sea levels due to climate change.

Highlighted by the striking blue Ocean Conservation Edition ecoTOTE, each order of an ecoTOTE by venue partners in participating islands nations funds the removal of one kilogram of single use plastic, glass and other human-origin waste from endangered, coral reefs and waters.

Using Green Steps Group’s proprietary “proof of impact” technology platform, cleanup operations are verified, monitored and reported through an industry-leading digital record. Ocean waste recovery benefits the venue partners, but is jointly funded by ecoSPIRITS and our Climate Partner brands and distributors.

The ecoSPIRITS Oceans Program’s local operations are in Zanzibar, an island archipelago off the coast of Tanzania in East Africa. Bermuda is the first island nation to participate in the ecoSPIRITS Ocean Program.

The cleanups take place in Bwawani Beach and on the waterfront of the ruins of Maruhubi Palace, which are located a few kilometres north of Zanzibar town.

Working with local village cooperatives, the ecoSPIRITS Oceans Program offers meaningful employment opportunities to residents of low income areas, creating social uplift and environment regeneration. Through regular cleanup initiatives, the local community benefit from consistent remuneration and training on conservatorship of natural resources.
