said TD Low, founder of Low Brothers. “As World Oceans Day approaches, we reflect on the continuing issue of plastic pollution and the burden it places on underserved countries. Seven Clean Cheese, in partnership with Knot Soda, has made significant progress in tackling this challenge by recovering significant amounts of plastic waste from waterways. As we celebrate this achievement, we must recognize the importance of collective action. We are facing a global garbage emergency and the time to act is now.

Luckily our guys at Low Brothers share our love for the ocean, and Seven Clean has partnered with Cheese and Not Soda to do something about it!

Lo Bros Not Soda and Seven Clean Seas have teamed up in an effort to tackle the problem, focusing their efforts on the islands of Batam and Bintan in Indonesia’s Riau Archipelago. These areas are severely affected by plastic waste, and the lack of adequate waste management infrastructure is exacerbating the problem. In communities of houses (kampongs) built over the sea, residents have nowhere to dispose of their plastic waste, so it often goes directly into the marine environment through a hole in their floorboards.

Islanders living in the village of Kawal, Bintan, pull plastic out of the ocean daily after experiencing a large amount of plastic waste washing up and polluting their beaches. Garbage is piling up all over Indonesia’s coastline, and the situation is getting worse. This is an issue that needs global attention.
