Imagine the Oceans Without Plastic Pollution
That’s exactly how we started and now we want to work with you to make that happen. Every FiveADRIFT purchase you make empowers our partner organizations to remove plastic from the ocean.
What does 100% mean: it means that after our normal business expenses we donate everything else to charity. 100% of our profits. We started FiveADRIFT to give it all away (Paul Newman was a wise man).
Every time you unfurl one of our towels on the beach, rest easy because you made the earth a better place.
CPA Certified Donations
FiveADRIFT was inspired by other brands who give away their profits and help people make an impact through their purchases. We rely on our accounting partner, Katz, Nannitz and Soloman to verify that 100% of our profits are donated to charity every year.
We are proud to partner with you as change initiators who also share a passion to clean this place up.
Our mission is simple: Buy a towel. Clean the ocean.

Founded in 2001, Oceana is the largest international group focused solely on ocean conservation. Our offices in North America, South America and Europe, work together on a limited number of strategic, directed campaigns to achieve measurable outcomes that will help return our oceans to former levels of abundance. We believe in the importance of science in identifying problems and solutions. Our scientists lead our team of economists, lawyers, and advocates focused on achieving tangible results for the oceans. Saving the oceans may take decades, but in each of our campaigns we aim to accomplish an important milestone in that effort within two to five years.

In 2019, The Ocean Cleanup — the dutch non-profit organization developing advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic — unveiled the interceptor, a solar-powered floating device designed to scoop plastic out of rivers before it reaches oceans. It can extract 50,000 kilograms of trash from a river each day. to accomplish this task, it uses floating barriers that catch waste and guides it towards an opening. the currents then move the debris into a conveyor belt which extracts it from the water and delivers it to a shuttle which distributes the debris across dumpsters. using sensor data, the containers are filled equally until they reach full capacity.
