Blue Community is an NGO that provides an opportunity for coastal communities, businesses, and organizations to declare their own work to protect, enhance, and restore coastal habitat and marine environments through their own sustainability efforts.
Reduction of plastics has been one of the 12 Blue Community Strategies they developed, and their last World Ocean Day event was plastic free.
Global Tourism Plastics Initiative
In the framework of the Global Tourism Plastics Initiative, Blue Community commits to:

- Advising and guiding affiliated organisations and businesses or partners to better manage plastics in their operations through practices, criteria, standards and/or policies, and support them to implement their commitments to the GTPI through sharing examples of how they conduct their own operations and programs.
- Communicating successes to affiliated organisations and businesses, partners, travellers and key local stakeholders.
