And become part of the solution for a cleaner ocean
More and more plastics are polluting our ocean and seas - the plastic soup is getting bigger every day. Let's make sure plastics don't end up in our ocean in
the first place.
Reusing our plastics by circular production offers a lot of opportunities. By gathering our plastics and turning them into new products, we can reduce our plastic waste to an absolute minimum. This effective way of production will keep our ocean alive.
Innovation is the solution to pollution.

I believe in the power of innovation and entrepreneurship to address complex environmental
challenges. With Searious Business, my primary focus is on sourcing solutions for the plastic pollution going on in our ocean right now.
Searious Business stands out by using disruptive innovation at the intersection of technology, sustainability and social change. I am passionate about improving effectiveness of profit organizations as agents of change.
Positive impact on three levels
Set up an Ocean Platform with a Framework for Action. Involve more businesses, start new initiatives with a set time frame, collaborate NGO's, research facilities and governments.
Set up innovative projects and get results. As a project leader, I connect people, gather funding and whatever else is needed to scale it up or make an application more mainstream.
Initiate inspirational projects in a number of municipalities. Gather businesses and other stakeholders for a new approach in re-designing and recycling of plastics, locally.
The three levels I work on, each have their own challenges. But above all, they provide me with a means to interlink and collaborate on a scale and scope I think is necessary to make a difference.
