Another fabulous beach cleanup on Oahu's serenly beautiful and desolate North Shore.
Was treated to a magnificent sunset, saw multiple Hawaiian Monk Seals (the one pictured was enormous and was taken from far away with a very long zoom...it is critical to not disturb these extremely endangered (approx. just 1,400 left on Earth) mammals as even minor disturbances will cause them to skip an entire mating season (for example)), and cleaned up and hauled out several ghost nets and buckets of plastic.
Please carefully consider your choices as a consumer and realize that day after day I see firsthand the ravages of our lazy and overly convenience-oriented lifestyles, and its killing our oceans, and in turn, ourselves.
Please make an effort to support bans on single use plastics, buy and support local farmers and fisherman, and for goodness sake, grab a bucket and clean a beach!
Awesome beach cleanup today with a truly great crew!
Grab some buddies and some buckets and get after it folks!
Kalei's Birthday Beach Cleanup was a massive success!
Many buckets collected, several great and happy volunteers, and much fun was had by all!
With friends Jeff and Julia having arrived last night for a visit from Bend, OR and Zach back from being on Tour, it was perfect timing to get out and clean some beaches!!!
...what a world-class crew!! Many buckets were filled and a great time was had by all!
Grab some buckets and some buddies and get after it folks! 🤙
Nothing like spending your 36th birthday helping out and giving back!
Got to do a beach cleanup with a bunch of great kiddos and mentors from Steps LLC here in Kailua.

Pounders Beach Cleanup!!!
We were joined by a wonderful family with two small kids who just recently moved here!
The kids got right after it and Kass and Chris had a great time teaching them about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the plastic problem facing the world today.
Such an incredible day!
