Our Story

We believe in a plastic-free ocean

Breathe Conservation inspires and encourages all people to walk as if they are kissing the earth with their feet.

Wise words of Thich Nhat Hanh, this powerful mantra unpacks our message to live deeply and tread lightly.

We aspire to be pioneers in the industry by aiming high and eliminating rather than reducing plastic pollution in the ocean, and the world around us. We’re focused on tackling culprits like straws, coffee cups, plastic bags and sucker sticks and promote responsiveness when it comes to addressing such a big, overwhelming task.

The idea is to respond in the moment, where you can, to stop plastic pollution – no matter how small the effort may seem.
