It is with great happiness we share with you that as of this month we are proud supporters of The Ocean Cleanup.
This Dutch organization has made waves across the planet and have incredibly powerful goals which we are no more than excited to support. For example, their aim is to clean up 90% of all floating plastic and pollution in the ocean.

Montserrat G. Mukherjee, the founder of The Yoga Therapy Institute, is a lover of the ocean.

My dad was a sea captain and I have been lucky to have swum in most seas of the world. This is a project close to my heart, but it affects all of us. The future of our planet is in our oceans, and it feels great to think that every hour we put into work contributes in a way to a better world for our future generations“. 

The Ocean Cleanup already have absolutely amazing achievements to their name. They are developing a passive cleanup method, which uses the natural oceanic forces to rapidly and cost-effectively clean up the plastic which is currently already in the oceans. With a full fleet of cleanup systems in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, they aim to clean up 50% of its plastic every five years.
