The mission of the Ocean Sewage Alliance is to eliminate sewage and wastewater pollution from our ocean and waterways, advancing equitable and holistic actions that benefit people and nature.
We aim to achieve our mission by collaborating across sectors, synthesizing and sharing knowledge, developing solutions, and raising awareness.
Marine conservationists have spent decades working hard to protect our oceans. But recent studies have revealed a problem that could be making all these efforts futile: ocean wastewater pollution. No one has been talking about this well-hidden phenomenon, mostly because society has long believed that the ocean could naturally manage human waste. In reality, the ocean has been suffering unseen consequences.
Since late 2019, a growing group of organizations have been gathering to create a collaborative space to tackle the threat of ocean wastewater pollution once and for all. Together, we call ourselves the Ocean Sewage Alliance, which officially launched on World Oceans Day in 2021.
