Sustainable Coastlines

Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii is a registered 501c3 with the mission of inspiring local communities to care for their coastlines through hands on cleanups. It is our belief that the physical action of participating in a Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii cleanup will lead to behavioral change aimed at improving the quality of our coastlines. When people recognize items they pick up during cleanups are the same items they use in their every day lives, they make the connection that by reducing the use of these items they will have a tangible effect on our own and others coastlines. Behavioral change such as reduced plastic use, recognition of consumer behaviors, and stewardship creation is promoted and fostered by our trained 
volunteers who share important data and stories that fuel inspiration and understanding. 

By utilizing a multi-pronged approach to raising awareness and encouraging participation in our events, we are able to attract individuals and groups from all spectrums of life. Our fully encompassing approach and welcoming style that fosters cooperation and collaboration has allowed us to thrive in our environment. The result of our work is improved quality of the coastline that can be sustained through the creation of stewards for our environment.
