Haaziq Kazi

Child Prodigy | Inventor of 'ERVIS'- an ocean cleaning ship


Haaziq is a 15 year old plastic pollution activist passionate about tackling the issue of plastic waste. He was just 9 when he first saw a photograph of a dead whale washed ashore in 2013, who had died due to intestinal blockage. 

He later learned that there are 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean and it is enough to go to the moon and  back twice, and that's what inspired him to start his dream project named ERVIS.

With the help of a 3D artist Haaziq designed ERVIS, a prototype of a ship which can extract plastic from the ocean surface. A ship that will clean oceans in a sustainable and  responsible manner.

With a motto 'Be The Change You Want To See In The World', Haaziq doesn't see ERVIS as a ship, but as a platform for like-minded people and organizations to collaborate to address the common problem of waste in the oceans and the impact it has on life. He sees it as a connected movement for people to contribute to help save our oceans and marine life.

Why Haaziq Kazi ?

This young prodigy’s ingenuity and dream of a planet sans plastic waste is a dream worth sharing to inspire our youth and bring about a generational change in the way we interact with plastic.
