Ocean Mimic is a brand and charity united by one common vision — healthy, plastic-free oceans. Our love for the oceans is at the heart of everything we do.
In Bali, the waste issue is extensive and needs a multitude of approaches to solve the problem. We want to be part of a collaborative and creative local solution which is why we work with a variety of local partners.
We choose our projects based on how effectively they can raise awareness, educate and empower.
Our projects include:
- Bali Cleanups
- Bali School Programmes
- Bali Recycling Center
- Worldwide Cleanups
Our costs include:
- Paying local staff
- Waste transportation
- Printing educational materials
- Gloves and bags
Emma is quite simply a girl with a love for the ocean. She has been diving since the age of 14, became a dive master at 18 and then an instructor at 24. She realized that while she didn’t want a career in diving she did want to educate people in a creative way to inspire them to protect our oceans.
A lot of her personality comes through in Ocean Mimic. She’s creative, passionate and a radical optimist. ‘It all starts with you’, is the motto of Ocean Mimic. Here’s what Emma has to say about it:
“I think that the world would be a very different place if everyone actually believed that they could make a difference. After all, that’s how Ocean Mimic began. I am no one special, I have no extraordinary skills, I just believed that I could do something to help and I put my heart into it.”

We celebrated the launch of our kickstarter with a catwalk to show off our suits and to have a night of fun with our community in Bali.
