noun - Project Kaisei is a non-profit organization focused on increasing awareness of the scale of marine debris, its impact on our environment, and the solutions for both prevention and clean-up.

Goals and Objectives

1. To bring together new technologies, innovations, and capabilities that can both help us clean some of the plastic debris from our ocean, as well as prevent it from entering in the first place.
2. To bring a significant benefit to society in terms of education, environmental awareness, and increased knowledge of the importance of our ocean.
3. To validate information on the scope and status of the North Pacific Gyre, which can help to establish the metrics and plans needed to bring about a larger scale cleanup in the future.
4. To bring about more focused education and research on marine debris issues, which will entail information on toxins, ecosystem impact, remediation or recycling possibilities, and new prevention options.
