Since 1999, Algalita has been the leading research organization focused on plastic pollution and its impacts on marine life and ecosystems. Our Founder and Research Director, Captain Charles Moore, was the first to discover the swirling soup of plastic debris in the Pacific’s north eastern gyre - known by many as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

Algalita has worked tirelessly to give the ocean a voice through our in-depth research and education programs. Through everything we do, we illustrate how every individual can be part of the solution.
