Live your best non-toxic, plastic free life.

Since 1999, Algalita has been at the forefront of the Great Plastics Awakening.


We design and deliver educational experiences that empower individuals to understand the full-scope of plastic pollution’s impact on people and the planet, while also providing tangible ways to support solutions.

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
