In 1995 Oskar went diving in the pacific. Here he was first confronted with the magnitude of the plastic waste clusters, which was already quite large at that time.

The plastic waste could not be seen above water. But when he dove down, he found himself surrounded by a large cluster of plastic waste. Fish were trying to eat pieces of plastic. Back on board, the tour guides explained how much of a problem plastic waste was for fish and also for birds. Oskar Edler von Schickh consequently concerned himself with the issue more and more in the years to follow and began to seek a viable solution. And in 2009 a solution was indeed found. Using his private funds and subsequently the equity of interested ecological investors the project was implemented in late 2009 and continued to be advanced.

Ecologically sensible projects have since been part of his business activities.

Oskar Edler von Schickh is founding member and honorary member of the board of directors for the Bremer Montessori Kinderhaus e.V. founded in 2016.

He is married with a five year old daughter.
