VOLUNTEER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE THROUGH ACTION!

The spectacular natural beauty of Northwest Pacific Coast beaches is the inspiration behind Angela Haseltine Pozzi’s passion to save the sea. Visit our workshop in Bandon, Oregon and help us fulfill our mission!

Community members of all ages work together to clean up our beaches and process the debris into art supplies to construct giant sculptures of the sea life most affected by plastic pollution. This has resulted in thousands of pounds of debris removed from local beaches and turned into works of art. These unique art pieces are part of a traveling exhibition that includes educational signage and programs that encourage reducing, refusing, reusing, repurposing and recycling.

Lend your support to continue this important work!
