Beginning in May 2013 and with the help of Keep PBC Beautiful and the Solid Waste Authority, we performed monthly beach clean ups along the island of Palm Beach. We have succeeded in removing over 311,000 pounds of trash off these beaches.

We also have a weekday crew that recruits 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, and 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. 

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. 

We’re Keeping It Real


We clean the beaches of Palm Beach regularly, in an eco-friendly way. 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 over 7.5 miles of Palm Beach to rid our natural world of plastics and unnatural debris.
