Blue Marché wants to take action by reducing single-use plastic usage and help cleaning up the existing plastic pollution problem. We want to stop the plastic supply from entering our oceans by producing eco-friendly and biodegradable products. We donate 5% of all purchase revenue to organizations* who are actively cleaning the oceans. We also volunteer in beach clean-ups ourselves and organize our own beach clean-up every year. Last year we actively volunteered at Plastic Ocean in Vancouver. By purchasing Blue Marché products you contribute on two fronts!
On september 19th 2020 the World Cleanup Day* took place. This year we participated together with other groups instead our own clean up. In total in The Netherlands, 127,211 pieces of litter were collected across the country in recent days. More than 39,000 volunteers took part in World Cleanup Day Netherlands in 2,517 places.
We still like to inspire our customers, business relations, friends and family to keep challenging themselves to reduce their own plastic footprint. And join us next year 2021 with our clean-ups and on The World Cleanup Day. For tips and tricks or workshops for your company how to do that send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Ocean Cleanup is a non-profit organization, developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. By utilizing the ocean currents to our advantage, our passive drifting systems are estimated to clean up half the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 5 years time.

World Cleanup Day is one of the biggest civic movements of our time, uniting 180 countries across the world for a cleaner planet. On that day volunteers and partners worldwide come together to rid our planet of trash. Businesses can also organize their own cleanup groups. An epic 36-hour green wave of cleanups takes place across the globe – beginning in New Zealand and travelling around the world before ending in Hawaii.
