Have you ever called someone a “litterbug”? And then not picked up the piece of trash sitting near your foot? Every time we pass by debris and not pick it up, we are making a statement that it’s okay to have trash on the ground. Now imagine you left that piece of trash on the beach. It won’t be there the next time. It will have moved on, picked up by the tide, into the ocean, down the current, and transplanted to another beach, where it is joined by the other pieces of trash you didn’t pick up.
H2O Trash Patrol is dedicated to continuously making a difference by picking up the litter on the beaches, and in the bays, lagoons, and waterways. It is their mission to clean up these pristine environments, making them safer and more enjoyable for people to visit and healthier for the wildlife and our oceans overall.
What began as a lesson to small children has since blossomed into an enterprising mission to clean up our waterways and beaches for the futures of these young impressionable and pure minds. Recently awarded the Environmental Hero Award by the Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation, H2O Trash Patrol is passionate about making a difference by physically getting out there on the beaches and in the water to pull out as much trash as possible and bringing awareness of the growing plastic and debris in our world’s oceans.
Cleaning the water and the beaches has become a family passion for the Diaz Family of Encinitas, CA. They are committed to making a huge difference by taking action and maximizing their time and the time of their crew to be on the beaches and in the water cleaning up as much as possible. What they take out they sort and recycle what they can.
H2O Trash Patrol specializes in cleaning up those “hard to reach” places in and around the water via Stand Up Paddleboards, leaving little to no footprint. They provide “custodial” services of the waterways for the benefit of the environment, public safety and health, and local businesses who utilize the nearby water as an added benefit to their local customers and tourists.
Only your generous donations and sponsorships can cause the change they make to be substantial. With your help, they are able to spend the maximum amount of time taking the pollution out of the water and off the beaches. Your contributions provide the resources the environment needs to heal and allows us to bring safety back to our beaches.
