WINGS OF THE OCEAN
Created in 2018, Wings of the Ocean is the first litter collection association in France. The French association acts in favor of the protection of the ocean, through the collection of waste and awareness-raising actions with the general public, children, businesses and local elected officials. These actions are intended to protect marine biodiversity and the natural ecosystem of the coasts.
Since its creation, the association has carried out more than 700 pollution clean-ups, collected more than 99,000 kilos of waste. Wings of the Ocean encourages and supports the initiatives of companies and individuals who are working to find alternatives to the consumption of plastic.
To fight against this ocean pollution, the association acts on the coasts with 3 depollution operations per week.On a fixed mission, Wings of the Ocean operates around the Etang de Berre, the Etang de Thau and the Bassin d'Arcachon.As an itinerant mission, a bicycle mission as well as 2 ships make up the association's fleet: the Kraken, the association's emblem, and the Scylla since 2022.
SIMPLE GESTURES AND ACTIONS FOR VISITORS
Do you feel concerned about the preservation of the ocean and want to take action? You can make a difference and be more than a drop in the ocean. By taking action, in addition to taking concrete action on the ground (and that feels good), you also become a source of inspiration for those around you by setting an example.
Do we take action together?
NB: At Wings of the Ocean, we believe that change is everyone's responsibility, from citizen actions, companies, to legislative decisions: it is obvious that the citizen should not bear all the responsibility for change.
DO A DEPOLLUTION ACTION WITH WINGS OF THE OCEAN
Our 6 missions and our many branches in France offer you waste collection actions near you. You will be supervised by the association's volunteers to collect waste from a defined area for about 1 hour.
Then the waste will be sorted into 33 categories and weighed, in order to identify the predominant waste in the territory and offer personalized solutions to communities. The waste will be transformed (subject to local partners for the material concerned), the rest thrown in the corresponding bins (all coming or recyclable).

YOU DO NOT HAVE THE TIME BUT YOU WANT TO SUPPORT US IN OUR ACTIONS? DONATE !
Our 6 missions welcome a group of ten full-time volunteers for 6 months. Our volunteers are housed, fed and washed at the expense of the association, which also covers the maintenance costs of our two sailboats (Scylla and Kraken).
Thanks to the commitment of its community and volunteers, each mission carries out 3 waste collection operations per week, allowing the association to have a strong impact on the territories. Since 2021, Wings of the Ocean has been the leading waste collection association in France.
Our ambition for 2024? Deploy missions around rivers, to capture upstream waste heading for the ocean and act at the source of the pollution route.
So to sustain our actions and continue to deploy ourselves, we need financial support. As a reminder, donations are deductible at 66% of your taxes.
