Cleaning the ocean,
rivers, and coastlines,
one pound at a time
Our captains and crews recover trash from the ocean and coastlines seven days a week
TOTAL RECOVERED SINCE 2017
WEEK OF 5.3.2020
TrashTracker™ does not represent the amount of products sold
Every pound pulled is documented and tracked
We take our cleanup operations seriously and always go the extra mile to ensure our crews are efficient and effective. That’s why we document and track each and every pound of trash we recover.
We’ve outlined the entire process so you can see exactly what steps our captains and crews take to document the trash they recover during each cleanup mission. The entire process is audited and verified quarterly by the Better Business Bureau.
A photo is taken of the crew that will be cleaning that day.
The plastic-polluted area that our crew will clean is photographed before any cleaning takes place.
Photos are taken of the crew throughout the cleanup.
Photos of the area are taken once the cleanup is complete.
All of the recovered plastic and debris is placed into small sacks for documentation and transport.
Each bag is individually weighed and documented on a TrashTracker™ Documentation Sheet.
The TrashTracker™ Documentation Sheet includes all of the information from the cleanup, including the date, location, duration, crew members, individual weights of each bag, total weight for the day, and the signatures of the recorder and location manager.
The plastic-filled sacks are picked up by our collection crew and transported back to our regional facility where all data is uploaded into our digital TrashTracker™.
How do we recover ocean plastic?
The best way to recover plastic is by using our own two hands, fishing nets, or other tools.
Having the right vessel is extremely important because each ecosystem is unique.
We often leverage boom systems to stop plastic before it can get into the ocean.
Developing clean ocean technologies improves our cleaning efficiency.
In addition to cleaning the ocean, we’re addressing the causes and impacts of ocean plastic pollution
OUTREACH & EDUCATION
Changing consumption habits on land can prevent plastic from entering the ocean
People can’t be part of the solution until they’re aware of the problem. Our job is to help people understand the causes of the ocean plastic crisis and empower them to act. From lesson plans for educators to regional beach cleanups and events, we’re committed to sharing our knowledge and inspiring action on behalf of the ocean.

We’ve donated more than $450,000 to ocean cleanup and marine conservation organizations
We know the ocean plastic crisis won’t be solved by one person, one company, or one organization. Because of this, we actively seek partnerships with nonprofits and like-minded organizations that have a proven track record of driving positive change for the environment and our planet.
