Protecting the Ocean, One Drain at a Time

Drains to Ocean is a grass roots, non-profit organization with a mission to keep pollution from flowing into our rivers, lakes, and oceans. We believe that every drain matters. Our goal is to create awareness by educating the public and empowering local networks of active volunteers to participate in worldwide street, snow and beach cleanups.

“A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fullfilled, they will say we did it ourselves”
— ~Lao Tzu

Drains to Ocean was activated in Huntington Beach, California in 2015. Drawing inspiration from the Surfrider Foundation's beach cleanup programs, Drains to Ocean focuses its attention back up to the streets, where we believe is the source of litter in the ocean. We are animal lovers to the fullest, with a keen interest in protecting cetaceans and human life. Acting as a voice for the voiceless and improving the environment for all living beings to fully thrive in.
