Educate. Change. Inspire.

Beaches Go Green, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, aims to create awareness and education around the waste that we produce and how it impacts our planet. With a focus on single-use plastics and our oceans, we are encouraging people to take small steps to decrease their plastic consumption and overall waste.  We believe that through awareness and education, people will make small changes in their lives that will add up to BIG changes for the planet.

The 4 Rs

Refuse

REFUSE disposable plastic whenever and wherever possible. As the consumer, the impact of refusing makes a clear statement to the producer that you will not take on the responsibility of excess waste. Choose items that are not packaged in plastic, and carry your own bags, containers, and utensils.

Reduce

Make decisions that REDUCE  your waste footprint. Cut down on your consumption of goods that contain excessive plastic packaging and parts. Reducing waste is a conscious choice and anyone can participate on any level.

Reuse

REUSE durable, non-toxic straws, utensils, to-go containers, bottles, bags, and other everyday items. Choose glass, paper, stainless steel, wood, ceramic and bamboo over plastic. By reusing items, you are diverting them from the landfill and preventing the creation of even more virgin materials.

Recycle

RECYCLE what you can’t refuse, reduce or reuse. Recycling should be the last resort in the waste hierarchy  Pay attention to the entire life cycle of items that you bring into your life, from source, to manufacturing, to distribution, to disposal. All recycled items must be EMPTY, CLEAN, and DRY. Remember to NEVER bag recycles - KEEP IT LOOSE.
