Essential apps for ocean-lovers

It really is no secret that our oceans are facing a hefty pollution problem. It is estimated that 6.3 billion kilograms of trash, most of it plastic, is dumped into the world’s oceans every year.

However, thanks to technology, it is now possible to join a global movement to keep beaches, waterways and the ocean trash-free all with the help of an app you can download on your smartphone.


Clean Swell | For Beachgoers
Available on iOS & Android

Clean Swell is a conservation-themed application developed by the Ocean Conservancy. It is an ocean-friendly app that allows users to head out to their favourite beach and use the app to record each item of trash.

Afterwards, it is possible to share those environmentally friendly efforts with your friends and family.

Use Clean Swell to “start collecting” trash wherever you are in the world. The data collected by the app will automatically upload to Ocean Conservancy’s global ocean trash database.

The cumulative data provide a global snapshot of ocean trash, in turn providing researchers and policymakers with the information and insight needed to brainstorm solutions.

Clean Swell allows users to join thousands of international Coastal Cleanup volunteers working together for a cleaner ocean by picking up millions of kilos of trash on beaches worldwide.

Features within Clean Swell include recording every item of trash collected, sharing cleanup results, track ing distances cleaned, total weight of trash collected and much more. 

Clean Swell is a creative app that allows beachgoers to make a difference any time they walk on the beach. The app is available on iOS & Android.

Once you’ve used Clean Swell to clean up the beach, catch the perfect waves with these following apps, but don’t take your phone into the water!
