Join us, Sylvia Earle, and our friends from Mission Blue as we cleanup coastlines around the world and spread awareness about Hope Spots! 

Hope Spots are special places that are critical to the health of the ocean — Earth’s blue heart. Many hope spots are found in places that are vulnerable to human activities, including offshore drilling, overfishing AND plastic pollution.

This Earth Day, YOU can help protect these critical areas!
1. Organize a cleanup! Contact samantha@plasticoceanproject.org to help or host a cleanup!
2. Donate! Help us raise funds to hold an offshore cleanup in Hope Spot: Hatteras or buy a Hope Spot Protector t-shirt. A portion of the proceeds goes to funding these cleanups!
3. Spread the word! Share on social media and share with friend and family. Help us recruit volunteers to help cleanup!
4. Join the fun! On Earth Day, participate in a cleanup near you and help protect our Hope Spots.
