Total Pieces of Plastic Removed

Pieces Removed the week ending 6.13.2021:


What is a piece of plastic?

A piece of plastic can be anything from microplastic to a large fishing net. Because any type of plastic is damaging to the health of people, animals, and the environment, all plastic removed from the coastlines, oceans, and rivers, makes a difference.

Our partners:

In 2021, we have supported Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and The Ocean Cleanup, who are working hard to remove plastic from the ocean, coastlines, and rivers – as well as creating solutions to help keep it out!
