What we're about
Scientists estimate that more than 17 billion pounds (8 million metric tons) of plastic pollute our oceans every year. This plastic not only threatens the life of marine species, but also impacts us negatively. Trash travels. Whether you are inland or close to the coast, the ocean is always downstream. The ocean is the origin of the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe and it is our role to protect it.
Ocean trash is a global problem that has local solutions so be part of the solution!
