Billions of pounds of trash enter our oceans every year. We believe that every living creature is united by the blue of our world's oceans and waterways and we all share the responsibility to protect them
Our fourth annual Blue Friday, a nationwide DIY cleanup initiative, is going down on November 29th, 2019. Before we dig into that leftover turkey sandwich, we’re going to spend one hour on the day formerly known as Black Friday picking up trash in a local park.

Want to join? Snag a DIY Cleanup Kit, and find a park or waterway in need. It's that easy!
