Blue Beach School

Removing plastic from the Ocean is vital and lowers the amount of plastic in our ocean that harms marine mammals.

For example, it’s empower the next generation of youth stewards! The Blue Beach School Program features K-12 online or in-class ecology curriculum. Certainly youth are the future. The Blue Beach Schools program focuses on the connection we all have to our World Ocean so we customize the program for each classroom.

First of all, and most Importantly offering four segments of education tailored to the unique needs of each school. Secondly, the program is designed to make the most impact possible. Therefore, our team works with teachers individually to make sure the program will work best for their classroom. In addition, students will remember the material that will make long term impact both for our waterways and the one World Ocean. #ScienceDebrisKits

Blue Streams

The main focus and goal of the Blue Streams Program is to improve urban water quality because everything flows downstream. Removing litter and plastic from rivers is the same as removing plastic from the Ocean, since over 80% of all litter comes from rivers. Hence why we rely on a holistic ecosystem based approach which engages whole communities in our projects. We’re working with nature and synergistic relationships. Subsequently the need to reduce pollutants that enter the river. All the while preventing erosion while providing wildlife habitat.

Support active projects by donating Trees for Streams to shade an urban stream or river near you, improving wildlife habitat and overall water quality.

Where We Place Your Donations

Ocean & River
Restoration

During the 8 years since father and son founders began this mission, Ocean Blue volunteers have removed 173,302 pounds of debris from beaches and waterways. This includes the removal of 82,582 pounds in 2019 alone. Together with communities, we also do River & Ocean restoration projects. Consequently, native plants provide habitat and feed migrating birds while providing shade for trout, salmon and beyond. Moreover, over 80% of all plastics that end up in the Ocean come from upstream rivers.

For every plastic fragment picked up during beach & Ocean cleanups together we save at least one animal.
​Beach clean ups are
fun for everyone! 
Our One World Ocean produces over half of the world’s oxygen supply and is the main source of protein for over 4 billion people worldwide. Hence why beach clean ups are essential for the health of people and wildlife. Perhaps you, your business, group or club would like to join in the efforts. In short, you can sign up for an event or Create a Clean up and make a united change together with friends.
