The pollution in our communities is a reflection of what’s hurting the ocean.
Whether you’re close to the water or not, you can fight ocean pollution with local changes. Make a difference by joining a community cleanup!
Most importantly, creating local community cleanups is a great way to teach youth the importance of healthy communities and clean water projects. Lastly, the more ocean plastic we can remove depends on Ocean Cleanup volunteers like you! Thank you for supporting Ocean Blue Project the save the ocean organization nonprofit.
Trying to convince a friend to join you in a cleanup? Here are a few reasons why we should all care about the health of our waters:
The ocean provides over 70% of the oxygen we breathe
Rivers and oceans are important sources of food
Seaweed is an ingredient in many consumer products and captures carbon from our atmosphere
Scientists use marine organisms for lifesaving medicines
If we keep our waters healthy, we can keep our livelihoods and economies thriving, protect wildlife, enjoy water recreation, and build a brighter future for generations to come.
As you explore the cleanup zone, enjoy the nature around you, but try not to disrupt the animals and plants. They're enjoying a beach day too!
If you find an injured animal, contact your nearest wildlife agency.
Microplastics occur when the sun breaks down plastic debris into smaller and smaller fragments that never fully biodegrade.
Animals often mistake plastics and microplastics for food and can get entangled, injured, gravely sick, or wash ashore. When animals that ingest — but can’t digest — these microplastics are eaten, the plastic moves up the food chain, potentially into our food.
Thank you for keeping our ocean blue.
"Beach cleanups are vital to protecting marine ecosystems because they remove plastic debris before it has the chance to break into smaller fragments that washout to sea and harm wildlife. By joining a cleanup, you’re contributing to the sustainability of our planet."
