Our mission is to fight back against plastic and all forms of pollution in our global environment, both on land and under the surface, starting with Lake Tahoe and the Cayes in Belize.
Through data collection, collaborating with environmental scientists, extensive research dives and outreach in the community we have discovered pollution issues within the community and under the surface of numerous lakes in the Tahoe Basin including Lake Tahoe. To tackle these issues we perform scuba clean ups and implement litter mitigation strategies in areas of need.
Where our founder originally was inspired to clean up the plastic, we’re proud to say that we are working on the initial concept of voluntourism clean up trips with an estimated launch of 2022.
2022 Programs and Projects
Our NPO’s flagship project was the first ever human powered circumnavigation of Lake Tahoe using SCUBA, and was the largest ever trash-clean up in Lake Tahoe’s history. In 2022 we expended to Mammoth Lakes, CA as well as hit June Lake, Fallen Leaf Lake and did monitoring and deep litter surveys in Donner Lake. This winter we have returned to Lake Tahoe to monitor submerged litter issues on the Nevada side as well as explore deeper litter accumulation at depths of +/-70 feet.
We’re taking action before it’s too late. Join us now.
