We develop hands-on projects and raise awareness of our own behavior in producing pollution. Floatables can impact the community both with severe flooding by blocking drains, causing safety issues and other potential harms. Potential toxins spread among the community's air, soil and water which can be released through photo degradation or direct human dermal exposure. Our goal is to improve and protect local waterways, to educate residents and young people on the negative effects of plastic floatables, cigarette butts, balloons, straws and debris.
