The people

Thomas van Thiel


I’m a passionate sailor and traveler. I started this foundation to combine sailing and the love for our ocean, to stimulate each other to take action. There’s still a lot to do, but I believe when we will all unite with eachother we can prevent plastics from coming into our oceans.


A deep love for our planet, the oceans and all life within!
