Noble causes play a big part at planBee. Our mission is to raise awareness about helping the planet. We want to contribute and give back locally and globally, so we now collaborate with the non-profit organization ‘The Ocean Cleanup‘ to donate part of our sales to clean up the oceans from plastic.

We donate a part of our sales to noble causes
Our brand’s mission is to combat plastic pollution and help save bees. We want to eliminate the need for single-use plastic that is polluting our Earth, seas, and oceans. We also want to generate positive change for humans and animals, and that is why we commit to giving back part of our sales to organizations and people doing hard work cleaning up the oceans.
Why The Ocean Cleanup?
Every year, 380 million tonnes of plastic are produced. Around 10 million tonnes enter the oceans. The problem is that plastic does not break down itself and it is one of the biggest environmental problems today it impacts not only sea life but also human life. ‘The Ocean Cleanup’ is a non-profit organization developing and scaling technologies to rid the oceans of plastic and closing its sources before it enters the oceans. The Ocean Cleanup‘s team consists of 120 engineers, researchers, scientists, computational modelers, and supporting roles. Their aim is to have removed 90% of floating ocean plastic by 2040.
