We're Having Fun Keeping Our Trash Out of the Ocean!
Trash in the ocean is a big deal these days mainly because our new materials don't readily degrade. Some trash like plastics don't degrade at all they just go micro size. And with 8 million metric tons of this trash flowing into the ocean every year, there are myriad developments to stop the flow, cleanup our shores and to get out what's afloat in the ocean. But what's the best action for you, your cleanup group or your community?
Trash can only be truly understood in the light of the local community. Let Shorecombers' help you find the perfect solution to keeping your trash out of our ocean.
Inside this website you'll find information on our coursework, our budding new behavior change marketing program, and hiring us as consultants. If you don't see a solution for you, please drop us a line from our contact page.
80% of Trash in the Ocean (and Our Local Waterbodies) Originates on Land. It's the Trash You Step Over Every Day. What Will You Do About It?
Every day millions of volunteers are picking up trash! Join us.
The bags are here! We are building a Behavior Change Marketing Campaign to spread the word that it is cool to pick up other people's trash. Some great folks are already doing it, you might just be one of them. Millions of people world wide are getting out and making it a part of their day. As they walk the beach or the neighborhood, they are picking up trash because it is cool to be kind to nature.
Keep up with the campaign as it takes shape and get yourself a free bag here!

We have a new logo!
Many thanks to Kat Byles, George Williams and Pimp My Cause!
Kat, our incredible marketing leader, discovered the Pimp My Cause website where professionals offer free marketing services to good causes. And on that site she found the artist, George Williams. She explain our cause so that he could create this beautiful logo!
The logo represents our positive impacts when we pick up our trash. Within the circle we see the lands and waters that can carry our trash to the ocean where it can be eaten by turtles, birds, fish, us... You get the point. We can make a difference for future generations and sea turtles.
