Growing a New Superfood — and Saving the Ocean at the Same Time

Ocean acidity has increased by 26% since global industrialization began. Excess CO2 in the air is often absorbed by the ocean. This radically alters habitats and damages marine ecosystems. About 3 billion people rely on the ocean for their livelihoods.

GreenWave helps secure those livelihoods by revitalizing waterfronts and restoring marine ecosystems. Their 3D Ocean Farms are carbon sinks -- absorbing 3x the carbon of land plants. GreenWave’s farms are models of sustainability. They produce high yields of seaweed and shellfish with a small footprint. And they’ve united ocean farmers who grow restorative crops with market innovators who turn them into food, feed, fertilizer, and more.
