Waste Free Oceans collects and transforms ocean plastic into new, innovative products. WFO partners with recyclers, converters and brands to make optimal use of available resources and raise awareness of plastic pollution. Based in Brussels, WFO also operates in the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Set up by the European Plastics Converters (EuPC) which is an EU-level trade association representing over 50000 companies in Europe that are producing more than 45 million tonnes of plastics products a year.
WFO mobilizes and unites the fisheries sector, the international plastics industry and all stakeholders in combating the growing issue of floating litter on the coastlines, at the rivers and in the seas. The initiative uses existing fishing trawls and new technology to collect floating marine litter and bring it back to land for recycling and sorting. The fishermen involved in this operation are compensated.
