Join our Ocean Challenge!

We are thrilled to launch our Planet Aware Ocean Challenge for you this summer 2020 – a chance to get out and connect with our fabulous coastlines across the Solent and the Isle of Wight!

The Planet Aware Ocean Challenge runs until 6 September and you can do as many of the seven challenge as you want as often as you want! You will find everything you need on our Ocean Challenge web pages including downloadable information to get you started!


We develop creative, fun and effective campaigns in the Solent area that help people make smarter environmental choices. Our aim is to help cut the amount we consume – from plastics to power – and make better use of the world’s resources. Based in the Solent with some 200 miles of coastline our projects have a big ocean focus and are often created with the seas and coast in mind.


Planet Aware hosts community events that are either no-cost or low-cost, including Beach Cleans and our ‘Alternative Spirit of’ events that encourage people to celebrate seasonal events by connecting with each other and their environment. We run events and stalls, provide talks and advice to organisations and people who are open to making a change or want to find out more about how to reduce the impact of our resource use on the planet. 

In 2019 we launched the Solent and Isle of Wight Beach Hub to showcase the great community events and projects that are happening across the Solent area. Find out how to run your own beach clean or get involved with an organised event. 

We develop and deliver projects with local partners and also work with local businesses and organisations to help them reduce their environmental impact. Check out Textile Transformation – our project to help keep textiles in use for longer and make people more aware of the impact of the fashion industry on our environment and our oceans.

Our work is supported by careful research and we seek the most appropriate local solution for businesses wanting to enhance their sustainability.

At Planet Aware we are always on the look out for creative ideas and projects to help you reduce your impact on the natural world around us. If you would like to find out more about working with us get in touch today.
