The crystal clear waters, and the beautiful coral reefs. These are amazing features of Miyako-Jima!
Found around 300km south west of the main island of Okinawa, it is visited by around 1,000,000 people each year!
Miyako Blue is a name given to the colour found in the seas surround the island, creating a gradient of different majestic blues.
We want this astounding island to last for the next 1000 years, so that even our grandchildren's grandchildren's grandchildren can experience this beauty.

But at the moment that doesn't look like a possibility. Since 2005, the area has been affected by a rapid intake of tourism which threatens the rich and valuable ecosystem.
The beaches are full of litter, the reefs are becoming white, and there is an undeniable tension between long time residents and tourists. These types have been seen in other places such as Kyoto, or Shirakawago that are trying to deal with the negative sides of overtourism.

No matter how many teams of beach cleaners and groups try to stem the tide of this rubbish, no matter how much is picked up, at the beginning of the next day there is even more rubbish on the beaches.
We need a new approach, a way to prevent instead of react to the rubbish, and we want this crowdfunding project to become a stepping stone of helping stop the mountains of rubbish that wash up on our beautiful shores!

With that, we have teamed up with a famous designer from Taiwan, the creator , to create the Miyakojima Beach Clean T-shirt Project to protect this beautiful island, and to bring together the islanders and those from all over the world that shares the same goal!

We hope that you can help support this project!

The beautiful beaches of Miyako Island and the unstoppable flow of rubbish that is spoiling it!

At current, Miyakojima is facing incredible problems when it comes to rubbish and its' beaches. With this crowdfunding project we want to broadcast this to the whole world. With the help of various cleaning groups we received their help and are using some of the photos they’ve taken while they're cleaning the beaches! We want to be able to show foreigners all over the world, how bad this problem is getting by using this information. The beach clean t-shirt will hopefully hold a strong message via its design against plastic waste and to promote beach and sea cleanliness!


Raising awareness of the effects on Marine Life and to aim towards one of the 17 SDGs set out by the UN

The rubbish on the beach isn’t the only problem. The rubbish found on the beach comes mainly from the sea, travelling up to thousands of miles to reach our beautiful beaches, with the majority of it coming from Asian nations, and this means that it's travelling and damaging the wildlife and their ecosystem. We want to make this problem more widely known, and with the SDGs set out by the UN last year and #14 being Life Below Sea, we hope to make a difference as much as possible!



Raising money to give back to the volunteers that help clean the Miyako-Jima beaches

With the project we want to give as much as possible to those that volunteer to help support the island and keep the beaches from becoming worse. We also plan to keep selling the returns after the end of the crowdfunding period in order keep giving back to these awesome people! It's necessary to keep fighting to stem the tide of rubbish that drifts on to the shores of Miyakojima.


Creating a project that will inspire and encourage everyone to help our fight!

With this project, we're also looking overseas to a famous Taiwanese illustrator, Cherng, creator of LAIMO. We hope with his help and the help of his character designs, we can bring in many fans from all over the world! We plan to create returns that will use this design, as well many local goods that are attractive for all!
