Our waterways are absolutely essential to the biodiversity of our planet. Without clean waterways, our planet has nothing. That’s why we’re working to promote biodiversity and protect our precious marine life by cleaning up our waterways – one clean-up at a time.Learn more
We hire local teens and young adults and pay them real US-wages – creating sustainable jobs that benefit local communities and revitalize micro-economies. By helping clean our planet’s waterways, we are simultaneously tackling poverty.Learn More
Something as simple as tossing a cigarette butt onto the busy street of a city far away from the ocean can be detrimental to our marine life. These pieces of trash find their way into a storm drain, which is then funnelled into local waterways and eventually the ocean. And then? A plastic bag used to buy a snack at the grocery store is mistaken for a jellyfish in the ocean — a snack critical in the diet of juvenile turtles and other marine life. When ingested, these marine life animals then often suffer from suffocation or digestion issues which can be fatal. If not ingested nearly immediately, the plastics breakdown into microplastics that . Marine life is a key component to coastal ecosystems — both for the fish and the humans. Turtles in particular act as bottomfeeders, the main source of food for larger fish, and the stars of tourism industries. Many organisms rely on their success and suffer from their death. This story can be told for countless other marine animals which fall victim to our trash that finds its way into their homes. Enough is enough. Let’s clean up our waterways once and for all.
That’s why we launch custom clean-up campaigns around the world, one waterway at a time. We work with locals — often teens and young adults transitioning from sex-work industries — to clean their beaches, paying them real, US-wages that break the cycle of poverty once and for all.
