How can we help? 

For conscious brands

Coaching Basics

If you are a conscious business/brand and wish to collaborate with us on your social impact initiatives, here’s how it works
Infographic of how the process of social impact initiatives work:
1. Select your impact initiative (linked to a form) (we give them a list of 3 initiatives they can participate in or 4th option for designing their own)
Location: Goa
Team size/ participant size
Contact details
2. One Earth + Brand collab
3. Communicate your impact in marketing, communications and reporting (1,2,3 deets are the circular workflow)

For universities/schools

Our flagship program is popular amongst youth volunteers as we
integrate impact, fun and adventure through our program. The
program instills a sense of togetherness and community support.
One Earth has sensitized more than 2000 school children and
collaborated with various technical and management universities
to onboard youth volunteers in our Plastic Pirate Program.

For Fishing Communities/Corporations/Organizations

The fishing industry contributes significantly to the plastic pollution problem through the abandonment, loss, or disposal of fishing gear (ALDFG), which includes monofilament lines and nets primarily composed of synthetic materials. The extensive presence of plastic debris in marine environments poses a profound and escalating threat to aquatic life, water-based ecosystems, and, importantly, human health. Connect with us.

Plastic pollution is a global crisis and ocean-bound plastic poses a
more significant environmental threat with its accumulation on
riverbanks, coastlines and the ocean surface. 15 million tonnes of
plastic waste enter the marine environment every year. Of all the
plastics ever manufactured till now, it was estimated that 60% has
been discarded in landfills, oceans and other natural environments.
Our flagship program addresses waterborne plastic pollution through
engagement with local citizens and fishing communities, involving the
retrieval of various plastic items, including bags, bottles, pipes,
nets, and fishing lines. It aims to forge collaborative partnerships
for plastic waste management and recycling along India’s coastlines,
rivers, and mangroves, involving fishing communities, youth, the
tourism sector, and government agencies.
We envision a future where the youth of India are not just
passive observers of environmental challenges but harness their
boundless energy, innovation, and determination to become the
driving force behind transformative change in tackling plastic
waste pollution and restoring our precious coastlines.
