Positive Effects On The Environment

Removing 1 Million Pounds Of Ocean Plastic

Our Ocean conservation projects are advancing the path to a better future for our one world Ocean. Do beach cleanups really make a difference? Yes every piece of plastic you remove small or large saves at least one coastal bird or marine wildlife animal. Ocean Blue Project is an Oregon-based national, nonprofit environmental organization working to save the ocean by removing microplastics. Ocean Blue Project is dedicated to protecting our One World Ocean. Founded by father-and-son tribal members of the Choctaw Nation, Ocean Blue's vision is for the world's ocean, beaches, and rivers to once again be pristine, self-sustaining ecosystems where wildlife and human communities can coexist and thrive. Together we can protect the ocean by reducing the amount of microplastics and marine debris traveling to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Have a company?

Saving The Ocean From Marine Pollution

As an ocean conservation and a nonprofit environmental organization we are proud of our ocean cleanup volunteers and the communities helping to create a cleaner blue ocean by lowering the amount of plastic pollution ending up in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Ocean Blue is learning more about plastic in our ocean and how marine pollution or plastic pollution is traveling down rivers into our ocean and back onto beaches

Beach Cleanups are vital to the health of our watersheds – areas of land encompassing any body of water. Watersheds channel rainfall and snowmelt to urban streams, creeks, and eventually flowing to reservoirs, bays, and the Ocean.

Along the way, the water flow will collect any waste and debris left behind, carrying it to the outflow point. Marine waste harms aquatic wildlife and their habitats, as well as spoiling tourism and recreational activities. 

When you organize a Beach Cleanup, you are empowering the local community to tackle this challenge. Coastal community clean up projects reduce the amount of waste on state beaches by removing discarded debris before it has a chance to be carried down a river and out to the ocean or broken down into smaller microplastics. 

Coastal beach cleanup projects reduce the amount of waste on state beaches we all love by literally removing litter or marine debris that is left behind or washing up one wave at time.

Spring is a good time for beach cleanups, after the winter high tides have left behind plastic debris on our coast lines.
