With the San Francisco Dolphin Club, the National Parks Service we are taking a beachhead by cleaning up Aquatic Park Beach, conducting beach clean ups, quantifying plastic pollution, marine debris and keeping the cigarette butts. This pilot project will help reduce butt waste in the marine environment, collect data and create an education program.
These clean ups typically take about one hour and are fun team building events giving back to our community. Companies and corporate groups welcome!

Donate $10 to support the Healthy Bay Program to fund gloves, tools and clean up materials. A $100 donation adopts a butt urn to directly solve this problem.
Working with the National Park Service on signage and installing butt receptacles we will help educate beach visitors and reduce cigarette butts discarded onto the sand, in drains and adjacent streets and walkways. Currently in planning phase, we are seeking funding to implement this program City-wide, while bringing San Francisco city youth from adjacent schools to help clean up, learn about marine ecosystems and our impacts, including cigarette butt waste. This pilot project will help reduce butt waste in the marine environment, collect data and create an education program.
