Our menu that helps to clean the seas
Seas of plastic, oil disasters, overfishing and ghost nets – our oceans are having to deal with a variety of increasingly serious environmental challenges. With the ‘Ocean Saver’ menu, 10 cents a tin goes to the environmental project One Earth – One Ocean (OEOO). Since 2011, this non-profit organisation from Munich and Kiel has been pursuing the goal of cleaning up not only plastic waste in water bodies worldwide, but also pollution caused by oil and chemicals. In the Ocean Saver menu, juicy duck meat meets energy-rich millet, vitamin-rich beetroot and vital substances from the sea (Sango coral, oyster shell, cod liver oil, seaweed, sea salt). 100% human-grade quality of all ingredients.
The project: One Earth One Ocean
With the Terra Canis ‘Ocean Saver’ menu, 10 cents a tin goes to the environmental project One Earth - One Ocean (OEOO). Since 2011, this non-profit organisation from Munich and Kiel has been pursuing the goal of cleaning up not only plastic waste in water bodies worldwide, but also pollution caused by oil and chemicals. The multi-stage ‘marine litter cleanup’ concept to eliminate coastal pollution caused by plastic waste involves collecting the plastic from global waters with a fleet of special litter collection vessels before recycling it or converting it back to oil. ‘One Earth - One Ocean’ projects to remove plastic waste from waters are currently underway in Cambodia, Brazil, Indonesia and Egypt (2020). Special waste collection ships called SeeHamster and SeeKuh are used for this purpose. A further SeeKuh will go operational in mid 2020. In addition, the association is engaged nationally and internationally in the research of microplastics as well as in educational work, awareness raising and documentation on the subject of marine littering. As early as 2013, OEOO was awarded the renowned GreenTec Award, Europe’s biggest environmental and economic prize, for its concept of maritime waste collection. In 2019, it also received the German Federal Ecodesign Award from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in recognition of the design for its new litter collection vessel SeeElefant (planned for 2021).
Duck with beetroot, sea buckthorn and seafood delicacies
The Ocean menu offers many great, healthy ingredients from the coast and sea – without resorting to overfished fish species or endangered marine plants. Because a healthy sea and an intact coastline can offer many healthy treasures, including for the dog. In the Ocean Saver menu, juicy duck meat meets energy-rich millet, vitamin-rich beetroot and vital substances from the sea (Sango coral, oyster shell, seaweed, sea salt). Coconut flour and fennel not only help preserve the right balance of gastrointestinal flora, but are also a great source of valuable nutrients and fibre. Sea buckthorn provides a high amount of vitamin C for a strong immune system that can withstand even strong sea breezes, while cod liver oil provides power, valuable fatty acids and additional vitamins. Aromatic herbs such as lovage, lavender and sage as well as natural additives round off the healthy coastal menu.
