I Clean My Sea Mobile App : spot floating plastics

Take a picture of floating plastics ... we will collect it ASAP !

About the project

During your summer holidays you may have come accross bits of plastics lying on the sand ... if you said to yourself that you would like to be able to do something simple but significant to fight the invasion of plastics in the ocean : The I Clean My Sea application is made for you !

Knowing that 8 Million tonnes of plastics where thrown away in the ocean every year, I Clean My Sea, a firm from the social and solidary economy works to collect plastics from the sea.

To collect floating plastics efficiently, I Clean My Sea invites you to take pictures of floating trash with its mobile application. The Picture, its geo-location and a drift forecast of the debris are transmitted directly to the mariners onboard collecting ships, helping them to be on the right spot at the right time to intercept the maximum of plastics in the sea !

The idea of creating I Clean My Sea didn't come over night. My professionnal experience is the main reason why I felt I Clean My Sea was possible. My name is Aymeric Jouon, I am 40 years old, I am an oceanographer. After my PhD, I have worked during 6 years in public research and 8 years in the private sector. In addition to forecasting pollutions, I have been in charge of a pollution remediation ship who's task was to collect marine debris. I have chosen to become an oceanographer because the sea is my favorite playground. My family originates from Brittany which may partly explain the attraction I have to the marine environment. Becoming an oceanographer appeared to me as the best way to keep close to the sea and maintain my nautical activities.  Today, I share this fascination I have for the marine environment with my wife and our two children. I Clean My Sea is certainly the best way for me to be efficient in fighting back the invasion of plastics in my ocean, it is also a state of mind : we shouldn't give up in front of the problem of marine plastic : ACTION is the best remedy against FATALISM !

Despite my experience and know-how I engage for I Clean My Sea, I will not reach the necessary efficiency alone ! Above all, I Clean My Sea is a PARTICIPATORY project. I Clean My Sea represents the last defense against the invasion of plastics in the ocean, all sea users are invited to build this last defense.

I Clean My Sea has not only been thought to optimise the efficiency of the collection but also to be economically viable. I Clean My Sea Detects, Collects and Valorizes plastics in the ocean.

  • Optimized Collection : The ships we want to operate already exist ! These are catamarans of reasonable  length (sufficient) requiring little energy and allowing to simultaneously COLLECT and SORT.


  • Detection to enhance collection efficiency : I Clean My Sea develops innovativ detection tools to inform collecting mariners of where and when the floating plastics drift. Amongst these detection means, the mobile application is our participatory tool. With this application everyone can become an actor of the fight against marine plastic pollution. When sailing or walking on the shore, if I see floating plastics ... I grab my smartphone, I click on the application, I take a picture of the floating plastics ... the job is DONE ! We can send the following information to the mariners collecting plastics : 
    • the photo
    • the position
    • the drift forecasted trajectory of detected trash ... their collection is more efficient !

  • Valorization to support the financial effort for the collection : The most valuable plastics will be recycled in long terme use plastic products which will be branded with the I Clean My Sea logo and sold to support the financial effort conceded by out main financial partners : the coastal cities.

A ship is ready to get to work

A web version of the application has been built to demonstrate the principles of the final application, it is available on our website.

We need to develop the operational mobile version of the I Clean My Sea Application.

Help us to build the tools which will make it efficient and simple for you to join in the fight against the invasion of plastics in our ocean : 

  • Give on this crowd-funding campaign
  • Subscribe and use (with your smartphone) the web application I Clean My Sea
  • Share and like on your social networks ... and share again !!! 

I Clean MY Sea works hard to protect our oceans, you too protect your ocean, spread out the word to the world, say "I Clean My Sea" !

What are the funds for?

The raised funds will help us finance the development of the operational mobile application.

The cost of such an application (65k€) is higher than the goals of this crowd-funding campaign (15k€).

A subvention for innovation will be obtained to bring the complimentary 50k€ needed ... reaching our crowd-funding goal is necessary to adresse for the subvention, for every euro you give us, I Clean My Sea will be able to get up to 4 times more !
