Beach Cleanups

Fighting plastic pollution, one piece at a time.

Join us at a cleanup!

We provide all of the cleanup supplies including bags, buckets, trash grabbers, and gloves. We also collect data that is entered into a national cleanup database to categorize the types of trash we find. 

Our number one most commonly collected item is cigarette butts.
