🗓 Saturday, October 12th ⠀
🕘 9AM-12PM ⠀
📍Laie Beach Park (a.k.a. *Pounders Beach*, NOT the beach park in Honolulu ;)) ⠀

You can come help for a little while or come help for the whole time—it’s entirely flexible and up to you. ☺️ All volunteers and any time is greatly appreciated as we wouldn’t be able to remove as much debris without your help! Your kids & friends are welcome, too 😃⠀

Make sure to sign in at our tent before cleaning & help yourself to our reef safe sunscreen ( @allgoodbrand  and  @rawelementsusa  😍), as well as any of our bags and gloves you’d like to borrow (If you have your own supplies that you can bring from home, that’d be wonderful, too!). 🌞 ⠀ ⠀ As always, remember to bring a filled reusable water bottle to stay hydrated 💦 as well as anything to keep you comfortable like hats and sunglasses 😉 Can’t wait to give some love back to the planet with you 💙 ⠀ ///⠀ Mahalo to  @barrelbag   @guayaki  @allgoodbrand   @rawelementsusa  @thessalonikecollection  @naturezwayofficial  @clarklittleclothing  and  @h2ohanahi for the incredible support 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽  #savetheocean   #oahuhawaii   #hilife  #oahulife   #beachcleanup  #savetheplanet

kahana cleanup graphic.png

Aloha, Oahu friends and fellow eco-warriors! :) Save the date; our next cleanup is right around the corner. Kahana Bay is pretty well-known for lots of micro plastic and other debris scattered across its shores. Let’s help beautify this stunning stretch of beach, and more importantly, give some love and protection back to the ocean + marine life. All needed supplies will be provided, but you are more than welcome to bring your own supplies (bags, sifters, etc.) from home if that would be better for you :) Thank you and we hope to see you soon #SAVETHEOCEAN

For updates and further information, please check out our instagram @oneoceanconservation.


March Beach Cleanup Details

March’s cleanup will take place at Kokololio Beach Park on Saturday March 9th from 9AM-noon. We expect lots of micro plastic, so consider bringing a sifter if you have one (although, we have a few that you are more than welcome to borrow if you’d like :)).

January Cleanup @ Makai Research Pier

Happy New Year, friends :) Join us in starting the year off well by giving back to the ocean: January 12, Makai Research Pier, 9:00am-12:00pm. We can’t wait to see you and catch up with you, as well as help the ocean, of course!

Join us Saturday, December 8th at Makua Beach for our monthly #SecondSaturday Reef and Beach Cleanup!

Like usual, we’ll be at the location from 9:00am to 12:00pm, so please come by to pitch in anytime between those hours!

Also as usual, we recommend bringing reef-safe sunscreen (however, we WILL have some AllGood sunscreen available for you to borrow if you like!) and a water bottle (plastic free, please! :)) plus a friend to tag along to make your volunteer time as enjoyable as possible!

At Makua, there is a large stretch of sand that could be good for cleaning, but keep in mind some of the more “trashy" areas might be over near the rocky sections or trees, so consider bringing shoes that will protect your feet as you’re walking around.

Depending on the size of the swell, we plan to expand our beach cleaning on land to underwater and over the reef! Keep in mind that if the seasonal conditions pose safety threats (big waves, etc.), we will just stick to the beach. BUT let’s keep our fins crossed that the weather and swell will cooperate! If it does end up working out, don’t forget to bring your snorkel/free dive gear, as this will not be provided by the cleanup hosts ;)

We will have reusable bags, sifters/colanders, scissors, and some gloves if you’d like to borrow, but as always, we welcome you to bring your own supplies, too!

Thank you for continuously supporting our conservation efforts and we hope to see you on the 8th!

Stay updated at @oneoceanconservation in case of any last-minute changes.

World Oceans Day: A Beach Clean-Up Giving Back

The ocean covers seventy percent of the world’s surface and is believed to contain 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile. Each piece of plastic can take anywhere from 20-1,000 years to break up into smaller pieces, which is to say that it will not completely break down, as most plastic will not decompose completely. Those pieces that do manage to break down create toxins that are carried throughout the ocean. It is believed that every piece of plastic ever made is still somewhere in the ocean. This plastic accumulation causes serious problems for the ocean and marine life. For those who do not care about the ocean or the creatures that live there, perhaps it will be of interest to know that plastic is causing harm to people as well. Plastic waste is constantly ingested by various creatures that are at the bottom of the food chain, which then releases toxins throughout their bodies that is transferred to the creature that ingests them, and so on, slowly making its way up the food chain until the toxins eventually reach our markets and dinner tables, causing serious health problems to those who consume the contaminated fish and marine animals. Although these numbers are overwhelming, it is important we do not get discouraged and take a stand to help save the ocean, marine life, and our own human population before it is too late. Throughout my life, I have learned the smallest events can result in the biggest impacts. Alone, each drop in the ocean is insignificant, but when they all come and move together it creates monumental force. Beneath the surface lies an even greater power in insuppressible currents; from above it may seem calm and delicate, however, below it exists more life than the very land we thrive on. It is a place that should not be used as a trash can, but rather treated with the utmost respect and appreciation.

June 8th, 2017 was World Oceans Day, a day dedicated to the immensely beautiful and everlasting oceans across the world. This is a day to take a stand and give back to the ocean and its inhabitants and what better way to do that than help remove some of the toxins poisoning it. A beach cleanup at Pounders Beach, on the northeast side of the Hawaiian island of Oahu, was organized with the support of One Ocean Diving, One Ocean Conservation, Keiko Conservation, Water Inspired, 4 Ocean, Devoted to the Ocean, Happy Earth Apparel, Naturez Way, Clark Little, Core Power Yoga, Xcel Wetsuits, Guayaki, Mermaids for Change, Real Life Mermaid Shop, Yoga Kai Hawaii, and many other sponsors.

It was a day that proved even the smallest effort can result in significant change. The clean-up began around 11:00am and over 20 people showed up, including many keiki (children) supporters. Seeing so many kids interested and excited to help make a difference was truly inspiring. Saving the ocean and world from the negative impact we have created through our use and improper waste management of plastic is going to take time and patience, and in the end it is going to be up to future generations to correct our mistakes. 

Throughout the cleanup it started to rain a lot and all of our volunteers pushed through the rain and kept collecting debris scattered along the beach - their dedication was amazing. Around 12:30pm a storm came through with strong wind and rain that was too hard to ignore and we had to end the clean-up early. Although the time was short, the impact was great. Over the span of a hour and a half we managed to fill up the bed of a truck with the garbage collected. Without the generosity of our sponsors and dedication of the volunteers this event would not have happened. We came one step closer to healing our beloved ocean, mahalo to all the sponsors and volunteers that made this event possible.

We are partnering with SUSTAINABLE COASTLINES HAWAII to host a reef and beach cleanup!

 

Join us for an Earth Day Celebration focused on giving back and keeping our reef clean. SCH is teaming up with Hawaii Eco Divers, Island Divers, One Ocean Diving and Keiko Conservation to add an underwater element that will incorporate a SCUBA, SNORKEL, and FREEDIVE cleanup! 

Check in and cleanup starts at 9AM and lasts until 11:30 AM. Park at Makai Research Pier or take one of our buses to the site from Waimanalo Beach Park. Buses will begin departing at 9:30AM.

If you are SCUBA certified and want to dive, bring your certification card and your own equipment. Gear and tanks are available, but first come first serve! For SNORKELERS and FREEDIVERS you must bring your own gear. We have limited supply of mesh bags so if you have one please bring it! Please be gentle when removing nets and plastics from our fragile coral reefs. Dive knives and scissors strongly recommended for removing fishing lines and nets from the reef.  

Our goal is to remove the underwater debris that is destroying the reef and endangering sea life.

After the reef cleanup, please join us at Waimanalo Beach Park by 12PM for music, food, games and more! Please consider the environment when briat Kaiser High School nging your own reusable plates, silverware and cups! Please no plastic! :)

Last year we had over 600 people help cleanup up 10,000 lbs of trash off the beach. Help us clean up even more this year with our first underwater cleanup to keep our coastlines clean and inspire year-round coastal stewardship not only through beach cleaning, but through simply using less plastic every day.

Please join us Sunday March 5th at Waimanolo Beach Park from 12-4pm for our latest beach cleanup event in partnership with Keiko Conservation and Water Inspired Conservation Group. In addition to diving along to reef to collect fishing line and lead weights, the focus of this cleanup will be on picking up land based marine debris making its way into the ocean as well as sifting the sand for micro plastics or “nurdles". We will also have a Keiki education hour and yoga session at 11:00am before the cleanup brought to you by Core Power Yoga. The event will be great for all ages and is a fun way to get the whole family involved. We will have prizes for people who collect the most trash from One Ocean Diving, Guayaki, Core Power Yoga, Xcel, Keiko Conservation, Shells4Sharks, Clark Little and more! 

 

** If you decide to clean the reef PLEASE bring your own scissors and/or dive knife to cut any fishing line! Pulling on the line will only cause more harm and potentially damage the reef. REMEMBER corals are living organisms so please be gentle!**

 

The cleanup will take place at Waimanolo Beach Park. We will start there and make our way down the coast toward Makai Pier collecting as much plastic and marine debris as possible. Check out the map and photos above for the specific location and directions. Be sure to bring a reusable bag to collect debris, a pair of gloves, sunscreen, snacks and water. We will have a limited supply of mesh bags, scissors and sifters available for use but feel free to bring your own if you have extras! 

 

This cleanup will also feature our partner Keiko Conservation’s latest campaign the #NerdsAgainstNurdles challenge for a chance to win a free sunrise shell necklace from our non-profit benefit line Shells4Sharks. Collect as many pieces of plastic or garbage as you can, make an image of your favorite sea creature or spell out a conservation message, post it on Instagram with the hashtag “#Shells4SharksGiveaway”. Multiple entires are also welcome if you want to get a head start and practice your #NerdsAgainstNurdles designs at a beach near you before the cleanup. You don’t have to be present at the cleanup to participate, so be sure to tell your friends to maximize our collective impact! The winner of the contest will be announced at the end of the cleanup. We can’t wait to see your submissions!
