We are incredibly thankful for those who joined us in our effort to raise awareness, find solutions, and protect the essential resource that is our ocean. Some people raise money by running marathons, hosting auctions or selling cookies. But we are decided to try something different. We worked to protect our ocean and remove thousands of golf balls. By donating to our campaign, you helped fund our education, becoming partners as we tackle the global environmental problems our generation is facing.

This was our original project that lead to creating The Plastic Pick-Up.
The video below is an update we made in February 2017 to show how many balls were in the same cove we have cleaned up after winter storms hit our coast. Even after many clean-ups, the cove keeps filling up with more old, worn out balls. Where are they coming from? Tides and currents move them, sand seems to bury them as it moves in and out with the seasons, kelp and segrasses grow over and covers them, and we keep diving to better understand where they go so we can get as many out of the ocean as we can.
