The Problem

Our wish is to help reduce plastics on our planet and protect and preserve our oceans and wildlife. We will join forces with family members up and down the West Coast of the United States to do our part. This is a family effort that we hope will inspire the communities around us and from there reach even further. Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents and cousins and friends will do what we can to help reduce plastic waste and inspire others to join us!

Our Plan

We will start by finding ways to help in our own community by participating in beach and waterway clean ups. We will grow the effort by raising awareness and inviting others to join in. We will use art, sewing and writing to get our message across and fund raise. We will create our own reusable sandwich and snack bags that can take place of hundreds plastic bags. Our young group members will help inspire other young people in their schools and communities through art and through action.
