MAKE BIG TOBACCO RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR CIGARETTE BUTT POLLUTION—SIGN OUR PETITION WITH CHANGE.ORG!

We've Been Busy!

Here is a quick look at what we have been up to this past year. We are pleased with the impact we are making and excited to do even more this year. Want to partner with us and help us grow? Look around our site, there are lots of ways to #BeASeaHugger!

How we fight plastics

  • Educate

    Educating the public about the dangers of single-use-plastic by speaking with schools and community groups. We focus on kids in hopes that they will become future conservationists.

  • Reduce

    Persuading corporations, restaurants, and businesses to reduce the amount of plastic in their products and packaging.

  • Alternatives

    Encouraging people to refuse single-use plastic and switch their consumables to reusables. Shop our store of alternatives!

  • Programs

    Funding private recycling programs in coastal areas of the world with severe plastic pollution and no viable recycling program and hosting community-run beach clean-ups.

There is no "away"

Sea Hugger is a nonprofit organization focused on protecting and healing the marine environment from plastic pollution.
