Our mission is to educate and empower the local community by introducing eco-friendly alternatives to plastics in our daily lives and working together to clean up beaches and seabeds.

Nuestra misión es educar y capacitar la comunidad local mediante la introducción de alternativas ecológicas sustituyendo los plásticos en nuestra vida cotidiana, y trabajando juntos para limpiar la playa y el fondo del mar

CURRENT PROJECTS

  1. Eliminate the Use of Straws in restaurants and homes through intensive campaigns and sales of re-usable straws.
  2. Eliminate single-use plastic bags by making and selling re-usable shopping bags.
  3. Clean up the beaches and sea beds by organizing on-going community volunteer events.

We will become self- sustaining through the sale of sea-glass bracelets, locally made with reclaimed materials, and the sale of re-usable shopping bags in various locations around town. We will also rely on donations, grants and volunteerism in our community.
