About Us

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.

Lake Tahoe

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.

Belize

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 is the first ever human powered circumnavigation of Lake Tahoe using SCUBA, and projected to be the largest trash-clean up in Lake Tahoe’s history.  In 2022 we are expanding to Fallen Leaf Lake and June Lake.  We are also going to be checking out hotspots on Lake Tahoe as well as re-diving the 8 miles of Donner lake that we circumnavigated in 2020.
