Who We Are
A community based social enterprise
our goal is to help clean the oceans with great ideas implemented on a local level . We repurpose ocean rubbish, establish marine recycling projects and actively conserve our local mangrove and seagrass beds.
Making A Difference on a local level
Regular rubbish collection
At ECOBEL we run regular paddle trips on Sydney Harbour collecting rubbish and repurposing it.
Our recovered plastics have been transformed into fins for the bottom of our boards , seawalls and art sculptures
Regular meet ups
Every Sunday of the month

Marine Battery Recycling
We have a marine battery recycling project trialled and tested in Sydney harbour. Our goal is to recycle 90% of boat batteries saving 110 000 plastic cases from landfill, 250 000 liters of sulphuric acid leaching into the water table and removing over 500 000 kilos of toxic lead from the environment.
Project underway -July 2020
River Bank stabilization
We invest directly in to river bank stabilization with our team of volunteers. Where access is limited we use nature and all that she gives us.
Photo is attached is one of our younger teams building a natural seawall of drift wood , tied together and pegged into the existing embankment.
OCEAN IDEAS THINK TANK
Our young inventors have deigned a floating bin which catches marine rubbish whilst attached to boat moorings. The fin attached to the simple design means that the rubbish stays caught as it always faces into the current
