Most of you know our beaches are littered with incoming trash and marine debris. This causes a serious threat to the health of our ecosystem and to the amazing creatures that reside in our ocean.

LET'S TALK TRASH

We clean the beaches regularly, in an eco-friendly way, along Palm Beach. Whether its a monthly volunteer event or our weekday cleans with our crew, we seek to eliminate incoming ocean trash from our beach. We have key partners that allow us access to move north and south of particular locations to rid our natural world of plastics and unnatural debris. 

Visit our GET INVOLVED tab for the dates and meet spots to join our clean ups!

Being the change to bring about change....and Keeping It Real!

Beginning in May 2013 and with the help of Keep PBC Beautiful and SWA, we perform monthly beach clean ups along the island of Palm Beach. We have succeeded in removing over 153,056 pounds of trash off these beaches.


We also have a weekday crew! Our Monday to Friday crew consists of individuals from The Lord's Place, a Social Impact agency that has been changing the lives of homeless families and individuals in Palm Beach County for over 30-years, VitaNova an org that helps young adults transition from foster care to independence by providing a stable, nurturing environment that includes housing, counseling, and education and Stand Down, reintegrating displaced veterans to sustain independent living, restoring their dignity and promoting community awareness. 


Help us combat the incoming flow of trash, there are several ways:

* You can make a DONATION to keep these clean ups active and efficient. 

* You can GET INVOLVED and come out once a month on our scheduled dates 

​* PB Residents can allow us beach access to clean. We are as quiet as a sea turtle and as efficient as an octopus.
