4ocean and Haiti Fishermen Come Together to Clean a Beach in Haiti

December 31, 2019


We’re out in Haiti today looking for a
beach to clean up, and we found one. There’s some locals over here that we
want to go talk to and see if they’re interested in cleaning up plastic
instead of catching fish so let’s go find out. What we’re trying to do is
we’re trying to pay fishermen to remove plastic from the ocean instead of catch
fish. Is that something you’re interested in? So guys, what we’re doing today is we’ve split
into two teams – the first team does a sweep of the larger objects and I got
the second crew behind me going through and getting the microplastic. So we’re
actually needed two sweeps today and make sure nothing’s left behind. It’s
unbelievable how much plastic we collected in 15 minutes. You know, we
didn’t have our handbags and all of our gear with us, but we were able to improvise and use the fishermen’s boats and we want to bring this entire cleanup
organization over to Haiti and involve the entire fishing community
