Clear Blue Sea is a 501(c)3 nonprofit located in San Diego. Together with government, private companies, other nonprofits, and the public, we believe in implementing solutions to fighting the problem of ocean plastic pollution.

Clear Blue Sea is a Startup Making a Difference
Clear Blue Sea is a member of The Maritime Alliance (TMA) and a chosen member company participating in the San Diego-based Blue Tech Incubator (BTI), sponsored by The Scripps Institution of Oceanography, The City of San Diego, Dentons, and TMA. The BTI is located in Dentons Law Offices in the UTC area of San Diego.
Our staff is comprised of founder-managers, student interns, volunteers, and senior advisers collaborating on initiatives to increase awareness of the environmental crisis of ocean plastic pollution and potential sustainable solutions. Given that it will take decades to clean up the tons of plastic accumulated in the oceans, Clear Blue Sea’s organizational strategy is to transition management and decision-making to an all Millennial Management Team.
