Our Work

We connect young people with scientists, experts, politicians and businesses to have real conversations about plastic consumption. Our hands-on experiences develop future leaders who are excited to solve the big picture.

What We’ve Done

As originators in the field of plastic pollution prevention, we don’t simply clean up trash – our innovative work is aimed at mending a broken system by shifting the way humans think about their environmental impact.

“We must work towards a world where plastic pollution is unthinkable.”

– Captain Charles Moore
