Microplastics Research Partnership Program


Ocean Blue Project would like to partner with you!

We believe the strongest weapon to combat the world’s plastic problem is scientific data.

We’re committed to supporting academic investigators to advance their research of microplastics through the collaborative Microplastics Research Partnerships program.

Ocean Blue would like to stem the flow of plastics into our ocean by partnering with investigators to research and analyze the microplastics recovered using beach cleaning machines and equipment.

Ocean Blue Project is actively seeking research partners to

  • Pursue their own research projects
  • Better understand the origins of microplastics, provide answers associated with seasonal differences in microplastic accumulation, total amount and types of microplastic and the age of the microplastics recovered to give insight on how to address the issue locally and globally.
