We don’t just ask for support for our own dream, we also like to be the wind beneath the wings of other beautiful, like-minded organizations.

Join the Dopper Wave Today

Every minute, a truckload of plastic waste enters our oceans. In that very minute, one million single-use plastic bottles are purchased. Coincidence? We don’t think so. That’s why together with Dopper we’re doing our part to make sure no more single-use plastic water bottles will enter our world’s waters.

OceanLove is proud to partner with Dopper and has joined the Dopper Wave. Because we know that with simple everyday actions, we can prevent large amounts of single-use plastic from polluting our oceans. Sounds good? Sign the Dopper Wave pledge too and promise to:

1. Ban single-use plastic water bottles
2. Drink from the tap whenever you can
3. Always bring your own reusable bottle
4. Encourage others to join the Dopper Wave too

You won’t be just a drop in the ocean: you will be a drop in a massive wave of over half a million people already. A wave powerful enough to turn the tide. Forceful enough to wash away the plastic trash. A wave with enough impact to actually save our oceans.

We’ve banned single-use plastic water bottles from our lives and encourage everyone to do the same. Will you join us? Sign the pledge today. By yourself, with your friends, or why not get your entire company, school, university or sports club involved? You’re just one click away from becoming an ocean-saving hero.


We would like to ask your support for a number of small, innovative and guaranteed effective organizations committed to the protection of the oceans. Give the oceans your financial support too!

Under the heading ‘Save Our Oceans’ a number of relatively small, innovative and effective organizations are brought together, including OceanLove.

Through this link: Save Our Oceans you can support OceanLove financially or one of the other organizations. If you don’t choose, your contribution will be divided equally among all the mentioned ‘Save the oceans’ organizations .

You can of course use some of your own money for this donation, but you can also ask your company, school, church, sports club or university to support ‘Save Our Oceans’.
