We are local residents, concerned about unsightly litter on our roadways.  Sharing this same feeling with many Marin residents, we decided to take action in an effort to rid our County of this blight.  


We are diligently working with government officials in Marin County to resolve this problem.  








Who Are We?

      How Does Litter Affect Our Oceans


      Look around the next time you walk down the street. When it rains, trash on sidewalks and streets accumulates in the gutter and is swept into your city’s storm drain system. Most storm drain systems discharge directly into the nearest waterway, which eventually flows to the ocean. Trash may also be dumped directly into the ocean by recreational and commercial boaters, and it is often left on the beach by beach-goers.
