Had a great group out to do a multi-stop beach cleanup along Oahu's heavy-hit Windward Coast today!
At Kahana Bay the team collected 16 buckets of ocean plastic that is now no longer choking out the reef and killing marine life!
Next stop - Kahuku!
At Kahuku the team removed over 1,000 lbs of plastic and ropes and netting from Oahu's most secluded and most heavily impacted beach.
As Kahuku is North East facing and is the Northernmost point on Oahu it collects more marine debris from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch than any other place on Oahu.
The team worked super hard today and had a blast doing it! On the ride back we all stopped in Hau'ula for pizza and burgers and ate like a famished bunch of hyennas! Great time and already looking forward to the next big team mission!
Grab your buddies and some buckets and get a cleanup of your own going soon!!!
Riding epic waves of ocean trash is kind of our jam!
Love this unbelievable and incredibly meaningful art by Ethan Estess (www.instagram.com/ethan.estess.art.science) entitled 'Plastic Free Pipeline' which was previously on display at Ehukai Beach Park for Pipe Masters in 2018, serving to raise awareness of the awful impacts on our oceans from irresponsible commercial fishing habits and our plastic-addicted consumption habits.
Reduce your plastic use, clean a beach, and know your fisherman.
Multi-stop beach clean up with fellow Towson High School graduate and legendary bassist from All Time Low, Zach Merrick amd Kassidy Kawa on Oahu's North Shore!
Highlight was finding two dozen lead fishing weights stuck on the reef at Kahuku.
..What a day!!!
The first pile pictured was collected by other good samaritans.
We used our cart to wheel away as much as we could.
It's a team effort and it takes all of us to make a difference. Grab some friends and get out there folks!!!

Sooo much plastic, sooo little time...
Make 2019 the year you consciously decide to use less single use plastic. Join a beach clean up organization. Clean up your local parks and encourage others to do the same.
You CAN change your own habits. You CAN make a difference. You just have to TRY.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
