Mission Statement

We set out to clean beaches regularly to remove trash and unnatural debris and to educate the community on the effects of trash, litter and debris on our environment and marine life.

Description

Beginning in May 2013 and with the help of Keep PBC Beautiful and SWA, we set out to perform monthly beach clean ups along the island of Palm Beach. We have succeeded in removing over 6 tons of trash off these beaches. With the manpower of the volunteers to help this effort, we have logged over 1500 hours committing to less trash in our oceans. We received non profit status in August of 2014.

More and more trash washes onto our shores on a daily basis.

We are in and out in 3 hours with all the debris removed at completion. You will never know we are there except for the hundreds of pound of trash that has been eliminated from your beach on any given clean.
