What we're about

Join the world's largest effort for our oceans and waterways. Cleaning shorelines.

Begun with rubber duckies in the mid-70's, now on a single day in Sep 2015, > 18 M pounds of trash was collected by ~800 K volunteers globally.

• 32 M tons of plastics are produced / year, (~10% is recycled).

• ~12.2 M tons / year of plastics go into the ocean.

• ~4800 additives in plastics, most unknown, but with 175 Known carcinogens/endocrine disrupters.

• Per year kills > 100 K marine mammals, millions of fish.

Join conservationist singles, families & groups of > 400 cleaning “hot spot” shores & creeks - in one fun, outdoor morning!

For families with young children, data collection cleanups are great - safe & teach making a difference. Also Nature Centers, i.e. Berkeley Marina, tend to include safety & environmental trainings. Hot spot cleanups can be tough for data collection beyond pure poundage.

You can download CleanSwell & collect data / do a spontaneous cleanup whenever & wherever you see the need.

An hour or two spent cleaning & protecting our food chain is quality time with the Anthropocene era. :)
