If You Don’t Like to Donate Money

We understand that some of you might not like the idea of donating money to an organization. So, we created two wish lists via that are full of supplies that we need to support our beach cleanups and habitat restoration programs. Thank you, and happy shopping!

Our 3 Years Goal

  • Prevent 60,000 pounds of trash from going to the ocean by 2022.
  • Engage 30,000 volunteers to clean from Streets to Beaches and restore habitat along the coast and inspire them to “End Litter”.
  • Provide 2,000 underprivileged kids with enriching beach clean-up experience.

Where Your Donations Go

  • $75 pays for 1 naturalist at a beach cleanup to educate our volunteers about our local environment, wildlife and marine debris. 
  • 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to support environmental programs to reduce litter, improve habitat and connect people to the earth. We’ll provide you with an annual summary of the direct results associated with your donation.
  • For $10 per volunteer, each individual is provided with supplies including a pick-up stick gloves and a bucket. A volunteer picks up an average of 6 pounds of trash/recycling and 45 toxic cigarette filters and forever joins the Earth Hero team.
  • For under $25 per student, we bring elementary aged school children to local beaches for cleanups and environmental learning.
  • $900 pays for a new trash can for a beach site.
  • $55 pays for a gardening tool and a heavy duty pair of gloves for habitat restoration.
  • $5 pays for a native plant.
  • $250 pays for 1 school assembly.
  • $5000 pays for a classroom to go to the beach to get onsite education (transportation, insurance and naturalists).
