Why should you choose a Whiteflag establishment?

The holders of the White Flag directly support the protection of the world's oceans, lakes, and rivers by performing local cleanups. A percentage of the profit from each White Flag goes directly to GUWAA (Global Underwater Awareness Association), a non-profit NGO that works to clean the waterways globally via hands-on practical cleanups. GUWAA has acquired worldwide credibility through showing visual results by salvaging enormous amounts of garbage from the bottoms of the world’s oceans, lakes, and rivers.

Visit GUWAA website for more information.
