Our mission is to help eliminate plastic waste from our oceans
"We believe in creating free and accessible products like our ocean search engine that allow users to contribute to cleaner oceans for everyone"
Ocean Cleanup Group (OCG) is more than an ocean search engine, it’s a movement.
Our products allow users from all over the world, the ability to help clean the ocean from their own homes.
Thanks to our innovative business model, we don’t need to sell bracelets or swim wear to clean the ocean… in-fact, we don’t sell anything! Nor will we ever ask for donations.
Our products are free to use and will always be.
OCG, The OCEAN SEARCH ENGINE
"YOU SEARCH THE WEB, WE CLEAN THE OCEAN"
CHROME STORE REVIEWS
OCG is the only ocean search engine that directly cleans the ocean. 100% of advertising proceeds go towards funding our very own cleanup operations.
Our search engine is very similar to Google or Bing but has a very different goal and purpose.
Every time a user searches the internet, we display relevant adverts. If a user finds an advert useful and and clicks on that ad, OCG earns revenue.
We then use 100% of this revenue to fund our ocean cleanup operations. We hire and operate our own cleanup crew across South-East-Asia.
We respect your privacy. We don’t track or keep any of your data.
THE STORY BEHIND THE WORLD's #1 OCEAN SEARCH ENGINE
"To help everyone make a difference from their homes"
The project was born out of the idea to “help everyone make a difference from their homes.” The three founders Mike Powell, Felix Millar and Jon Chambers wanted to create something that could encourage people “to make a change wherever and whenever they are.
“While traveling, I was shocked at the extent of plastic waste in some countries, you hear and see news about it all the time, but seeing and witnessing it firsthand really brought something to life in me,” Powell told Forbes.com”
He felt motivated to act, so he used his savings and tech skills to develop the OCG ocean search engine. In three months, they removed over 126 tons of plastic thanks to 100,000 search engine users.
450,000 pounds of plastic later, and over 10,000,000 web searches, OCG is fast positioned to become one of the top alternative search engines.
