Omhu works closely with local governments, organizations and communities in order to facilitate a common focus on the environment and the importance of our nature.
Omhu arranges beach clean-ups and recycles ocean plastic into new products. The way Ohmu became a Starboard Ocean Ambassador is because they made trash pickers using clean up wast.
