pounds of trash removedJoin Us FOR A CLEANUP
The van is packed, the route is mapped, and we’re ready to roll! We’re living on the road this summer, cruising through 21 states to clean some of the nation’s most vital waterways and to shake hands with the people holding it down when we're not around (i.e. you!). Together, we’ll help maintain these bodies of water for generations to come.Where are we going?
The amount of plastic waste in our oceans and waterways is mind-boggling: 8 million tons of plastic enter oceans each year. Plastic bottles alone make up 1.5 million tons of plastic waste annually.
Plastics and other litter ultimately end up in the world’s gyres, or circulating ocean currents, and can turn into dense vortexes of trash. The most famous marine trash heap, The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, is twice the size of Texas.
We created this company because we wanted to make a bigger, more measurable impact on our oceans and encourage people to do the same. So we stopped simply writing checks and started organizing and hosting these cleanups. We wanted to do our part to clean the waterways ourselves.
That’s also why we take the care to create products that use responsible materials (like recycled polyester, which reuses plastic bottles so they won’t wind up in gyres). If you’d like to help, we’d love to see you at our next cleanup.
