Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans. Whether it’s by water or land, daily expeditions take place on different locations. Depending on the conditions and tide, we take different approaches, aiming to collect the most plastic and trash we can for the day!

There’s so many ways you can get involved to help the environment, to make an impact against Climate Change and help people from surrounding Communities of our beautiful country that are in need of a new opportunity.
As you can see in our video, through one of our Initiatives called “Fishing Plastic” we can do an effective partnership, and ensure sustainable results necessary for the ecosystems and the people in the area. By sponsoring activities like this you are helping not only to recover tons of plastic and other materials from our coastilines to be up cycled but also giving families the opportunity to have a job and bring food to their households.
On 2019, Punta Leona Resort and Club requested MareBlu to initiate the development, design and construction of the artificial reef project. These structures duplicate spheres, which in time will promote and enhance marine life on the Playa Blanca marine reserve. This project consists of approximately 200 artificial reef structures will go through 2021 to 2025.
The turtle hatchery project, is the next chapter in conservation for Mareblu. It will be established at the end of 2021 and beginning of 2022. Several studies indicate that these beaches are getting a growing number of turtle nests per year, but the beach does not have the ideal characteristics for them to hatch properly. The turtle nesting hatchery will increase the number of successful nests to promote marine life recovery.
Our new upcycling center will be one of a kind facility on the central pacific of Costa Rica. We do not believe in retrieving plastic pollution from the environment and sending it to the Municipal Land fill. It is with that in mind, that we are creating the Upcycling center. First to motivate recycling in the area, and second but most important to create products from te plastic we retrieve from the ocean, directly in our facility.
One of our newest Mareblu projects is the MX1, the first Plastic Recovery Expedition vehicle in CR, set out to work hard on difficult to reach beaches and coastlines. This rugged Isuzu NPS truck is going to take our crew on amazing experiences through Costa Rica, on our mission to clean our coastlines from plastic pollution and having an awesome time doing it. It is fitted with roof racks and a trailer to haul the plastic back to our headquarters and our up-cycling facility. If you are an environmentally conscious company and want to help us with this project you can sponsor by joining in with your logo branding on our unique and invincible MX1!!
