WHAT IS THE MISSION OF OZEANKIND® E.V. ?
THE MATERIAL PLASTIC IS NOT THE PROBLEM. IT IS THE WASTE.
AND IT`S US WHO CREATE IT.
Some people less, some people more. For instance, people in Germany cause more, french or spanish people more (yes, that is really true!). The recycling system in Germany is not working half as good as many people think – and there are so many countries who don´t even have one.
At the end of the day it´s really not important what “OTHERS” do – we better should think about our own plastic waste usage and its recycling before pointing our fingers to other people.
EVERYBODY CAN DO SOMETHING – AT ONCE.
It´s really not too hard to think about nature and the situation of our oceans. From our point of view it´s absolutely wrong to think that we alone cannot change something. The opposite is true – WE are the only people who really can change something.
It should be damn normal to fight for a cleaner and healthier environment and, normally even more obvious, to even think about that. A world where it´s normal to be convinced that we all can make big differences.
REALITY IS KEY.
NOBODY IS PERFECT.
Not even us, being the founders of this organization. Not everybody needs to move into the forest. Not everybody needs to mix his or her own shampoo. And we don´t need to avoid plastic at all times. We can do all of that – but that is not a must. Maybe … just start?
HOW THE WORLD WE WANT TO LIVE IN LOOKS LIKE
- One day we´d like to live on a place without products wrapped in single-use plastics ending up in our environment.
- A world without trash ending up in the ocean. A world without beaches full of plastic waste.
- A world where as many people as possible have access to a working recycling system.
- A world where the protection of the environment gets introduced as early as in pre-school.
- A world where environmental protection and the protection of the worlds resources is a subject in school.
- A world where nobody is laughing about other people taking care or not taking them serious.
- We wanna live in a world where people have a high awareness, a good level of self-reflexion and the motivation the be the change they want to see in the world.
- We are looking for people who question things, who search for solutions and who start to change themselves instead of waiting for others to change the world for them.
