We need YOUR help to keep up the #plasticfree momentum!

We’ve educated 13,000+ students 

Through our education program, we have educated over 13,000 students in Miami-Dade County about plastic pollution through in-class and virtual presentations. Our Sustainable Business Workshop inspires high-school students to take action eliminating plastic waste at their schools. After one of our workshops, students pushed their school’s administration to eliminate  over 5,000 single-use plastic trays every single day from the waste generated at their cafeteria. Our Trash Olympics provides K-5 graders the opportunity to learn about plastic pollution through play.

We’ve cleaned up 55,000+ pounds of debris

Through our cleanup programs, we’ve engaged over 10,000 people at cleanups removing over 55,000 pounds of trash from the streets, beaches, and reefs. We host SCUBA Cleanups, Keg N Kleans, Pub Crawl Pick Ups, Yoga Cleanups, SUP Cleanups, Kayak Cleanups, and Corporate Team Building Cleanup Events. Many people attribute cleanups to their initial experience learning about plastic pollution, noting that once they see the trash, they cannot “unsee” it.

We’ve engaged 14,000+ people at over 300 zero-waste events

Through our lifestyle awareness events program, we have hosted over 300 events promoting sustainability to over 14,000 attendees. Our unique events creatively blend sustainability principles into positive and engaging environments. We’ve hosted everything from Eco-Fashion Shows to Compost Workshops to Eco-Friendly Spin Classes, celebrating businesses taking steps to eliminate single-use plastics.

We’ve eliminated 2 million+ plastic items

Through our sustainability consulting program, we have eliminated over 2 million plastic items (and counting!) from the  waste stream by consulting local businesses on how to stop using single-use plastic. We also work with local governments to implement sustainability campaigns. We helped launch and continue to run the City of Miami Beach’s #plasticfreeMB and Miami-Dade County’s #plasticfree305 programs. Each are voluntary certification programs for businesses that eliminate single-use plastics. Your donations will support our #ZeroWasteMiami initative!
