gravity wave awards

Plastic pollution of seas and oceans is the most visible part of climate change, and tackling this challenge is only possible thanks to the incredible effort and commitment of different actors in society.


Beyond our mission

Global warming, extreme weather conditions, melting ice, shrinking polar ice caps, sea level change, the impact on flora, fauna, and on us…


There are many challenges that, for a long time we have not been able to see and today lead us to ask ourselves: How did we get into this situation?

Taking care of the oceans for the present and future

Acting for what matters is about ensuring a healthy, sustainable, and safe future. Thanks to the Gravity Wave Awards, we reward all the actors who believe in and work with us to achieve our goal: ending plastic pollution in the sea.
