Storytelling for the Future

College students’ PSA shows a different fate for oil

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

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
