Escape's take on Common Seas

Common Seas believe in healthy seas for all. Their mission is to quickly and significantly reduce the amount of plastic polluting the oceans - something that is more crucial now than ever. A small but very mighty and influential team, they have been making a huge local and international impact through four key projects, which centre around research, education, and engagement with governments, corporations and schools. Their project work spans Greece, the Maldives and Indonesia and, with, consistently high scores across all 6 metrics, we're delighted to have this amazing not-for-profit as one of our top 100 in 2021.
