What do we do with bulk plastic collected from beaches?
Ocean Blue will be sending all bulk plastic to a company which the plastic will be recycled into other products like the head and shoulders shampoo bottle you may have seen advertised.
Our goal is to lower excess garbage going into our landfill. If you have a shared the belief in lowering plastic pollution, and would like to join this cleanup event, please register at www.OceanBlueProject.org. “Ocean Blue Project Inc. is dedicated to protecting the ocean, rivers, and urban streams because a healthy community starts with a healthy river,” said Richard Arterbury, President of OBP. “Participating in a beach cleanup is one way that citizens can do their part for the beaches we all love. Clean and healthy beaches provide everything from clean drinking water to recreation opportunities to fish and wildlife habitat.
The Ocean Blue Project is committed to keeping the ocean, beaches, and rivers clean so we can protect and restore them for us – and future generations.” OBP’s mission is to protect and conserve the environment through education and reducing pollution. They utilize an organic approach including mycofiltration which uses fungi in urban streams, environmental outreach, and community engagement. Ocean Blue Project is working effortlessly in rivers and on the coast with high goals for education, backed with ocean, beaches, streams and river research.
