behaviour change

Mobilising a community that protects our oceans

Project White Sands

Pasir Ris is a beach town in the North of Singapore which means 'White Sands' in English. Project White Sands mobilises the town of Pasir Ris to inculcate lasting behaviour change in the town through community mobilisation online and offline, raising awareness of marine plastic pollution and beach cleanups a way of life. Go beyond the conventional CSR or Corporate Social Responsibility event or Team Building with an ocean conservation NGO that proudly works by the sea with local fishermen, indigenous people, scientists and industry to turn ocean pollution into solutions.

Our OPP Beach Hub made 100% from recycled F1 Event Materials and built by our staff and Pasir Ris residents is the perfect location for CSR Teambuilding beach clean ups, eco-gardening, workshops, talks, sundowners and more! Reach out to our friendly staff today at and let us tailor an event for you.

We are the first and only beach clean up in Singapore that converts a section of the trash you collect into hydrogen! All our events help us continue our research and community programmes in Singapore and beyond.
