- Lobby and influence global, regional, national and local institutions to facilitate integration and usage of recycled ocean plastic, through every incentive possible, from tax cuts to fiscal benefits to subsidies, etc
- Support and develop R&D efforts to extract micro plastic and deep sea plastic in a cost effective manner. Though the initial focus is to remove and recycle big plastic pieces before they break into smaller ones, and that will take a couple of years, all other plastic should be extracted and ways to scale this must be found
