Why The Beach?


Why The Beach?

We live on a giant blue ball called Planet Earth.

The reason it's blue is because the majority of our planet is made up of ocean. Subsequently, A healthy ocean is a healthy planet. You don't have to live at or near the coastline to be heavily reliant on the well being of the ocean. With that being said though, the beaches are indeed our last line of defense. The beaches are the final resting place for litter before beginning it's never ending journey at sea. Plastic which enters the ocean will NEVER biodegrade. It will, however, break down into smaller and smaller pieces which are consumed by sea life essential to our planets ecosystem.

Every stream, every cloud, every rain drop- it all comes back to our ocean. As wind and weather sweep the water back towards it's source human waste, which is detrimental to the well being of the ocean, is peppered along the beautiful beaches which greet the ocean at it's shorelines around the globe.

In an effort to preserve the beauty of these coastlines, as well as maintain a healthy environment for the largest part of the planets ecosystem, we organize beach clean up events worldwide. Every single piece of trash we collect off the beach, big or small, is potentially saving one of our aquatic counterparts. By maintaining the beauty and health of our coastlines, we maintain a healthier ocean which in return creates a healthier planet for the entire population on Earth!

What We Do


What We Do

We focus on 3 things: Our COMMUNITY, Our COMPANY & Our CAUSE!


Our COMMUNITY

We are based out of San Clemente, California which is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and surf breaks on the face of our planet. With our city rapidly expanding, our beaches are becoming more and more crowded. It's an unfortunate reality that with more crowds comes more litter. Not only does this litter affect the local community, it affects the world as a whole, floating away to be lost in the Pacific vortex; to wash up on some faraway beach; or to endanger the lives of our ocean friends. 

We have realized that the time is now for us to make additional efforts in order to preserve the beauty of our world-renowned beaches.

As a COMMUNITY we have the power to leave a positive and lasting impact on our city AND our planet as a whole. By putting our heads and hearts together we have decided to externalize our love for our beaches. Thus, we organize multiple beach cleaning events every month to bring together our community and express gratitude for the place we call home. We provide volunteers with FREE meals and a fun, friendly environment. Afterwards we get together to celebrate with parties suited for the whole family. It is essential for the planet that we educate the youth about the importance of a sustainable existence. These community beach cleaning events are the best way to demonstrate that message!


As a COMPANY we are here to do much more than just clean the beaches. If we don't implement change in other ways, we will never solve the bigger issue: WHY IS THERE TRASH ON THE BEACH IN THE FIRST PLACE??? Their are multiple answers to that question. One answer is a lack of education and awareness. Another is laziness. Another is lack of regulations and/or policing of these regulations. We live in a time where life has been made so simple for our society that the majority of people think most problems already have a solution in place. Unfortunately, when it comes to environmental issues, there are a lot of "half-measures" which have NOT been implemented correctly (or at all). 

Thus, we as a company are here to raise awareness, educate, inspire, and implement the immediate and substantive change necessary to rid our community, and ultimately the world, of the excessive waste being created by our ever expanding population.

We are working with the California Coastal Commission, California State Parks, City Officials, and influential local businesses to implement immediate and long term change. Everything from signage in the local area to plans for a local Green Police Program to hold individuals responsible when they break the law and harm the environment. 

We are also working with worldwide inventors, architects, and world-renowned craftsman to create surf products out of waste we collect: Surfboards made from cardboard, discarded wood, and even agave. We are even creating surf fins made from plastic we collect off the beaches. As a society, we are creating too much waste and The Beach Conservation Program is here to shed light on the fact that not only is RE-cycling important- but even more so is UP-cycling.

We, as a society, have the ability to transform waste into want and that is a beautiful thing.

Furthermore, we will be also be releasing a line of sustainable products which will be available in the near future: Cups, straws and bags which will last forever to combat the overabundance of single use plastics in todays world!

Our COMPANY


Although our company and community are very important, our CAUSE might even be more so. We are here to educate and create awareness for sustainability worldwide. Ultimately our goal is to CREATE A MORE CONSCIOUS CONSUMER. 

We want to remind the world that we, as humans, are not here to USE nature- WE ARE NATURE.

Everyone one of us is an extension of this planet and thus we are all connected to the Earth. We shouldn't be trying to drain the planet of all it's worth. We should be living consciously and taking responsibility for our actions and the waste we are creating. The great thing about this message is that it is easily understood if it is delivered correctly. Taking care of the planet is a COOL thing to do. Nothing feels better than connecting with the earth, embracing its majestic powers, and helping it to flourish. The thing is, society moves so fast nowadays that it's easy to forget how truly connected we are to the earth, the birds, the wildlife, the fish, the forests, the deserts, the rivers, the lakes, the streams, the oceans, and the BEACHES. 

WE ARE NATURE. We must do our part to help preserve this magic FAR into the future. It is our responsibility and it's not a boring chore. It is a magical gift. We are The Beach Conservation Program and we are here to make the world a better place for you, your family & it's future generations! Join the party!

We are a small scale grass-roots non-profit organization with an extreme passion for creating awareness for sustainability in our local area as well as worldwide.

With that being said, your donations do not go towards funding private jet excursions and executive salaries. When donating to our non-profit you DIRECTLY become part of our team that is fighting to make San Clemente, California (and ultimately the entire planet) a better, safer, prettier, and healthier place. 

Everyone who donates will receive a personal email stating what your donation will be utilized to help with. Unlike other large scale non-profits where you have NO idea what your donation was used for - The Beach Conservation Program is an organization you can donate to and KNOW what issue you are helping to solve.


We realize that most people have three things to contribute: time, money, and talent. If you are someone that has a lack of available capital - don't feel bad. It's understandable. We would love to have you donate your time or talent instead. It comes down the fact that YOU are extremely valuable to the growth of our organization. We need each other to further our mission in making this world a better, healthier place. In the meantime we will keep you up to date on our schedule of beach cleaning events. We would love to have you join our team!
