How can I get involved?


Consider a tax deductible donation. Getting involved is as easy as refusing single-use plastics. Although it's not so simple. It seems plastics have become too normalized in today's commerce and economy. You can help create a demand against Plastic Symptoms by opting out in daily habits. Other ways you can help are by supporting zero waste initiative and getting involved with community efforts to clean beaches, waterways, and roads. Every drain leads to the ocean.




Who is funding this amazing event?


You are! We (Heather and Bryan) have reached into the bottom of our pockets and are counting on viewers and comunity support to help us reach our goal. As we hike we are creating a digital token that will be sent to all our supporters Ethereum wallets as a digital thank you for supporting our efforts along the coast. WE CAN'T DO THIS WITHOUT YOU!
