1+A Day
World wide
1+A Day

Plastic is a major issue facing our oceans and we can all do something about it - watch this video to find out a way you can help keep plastic out of our oceans.

A lot of the plastic we walk past in our streets each day will end up in the ocean. If every one of us picked up at least one piece of plastic each day, this would make a significant difference in the amount of plastic making it's way daily into the ocean. If we all do a little bit, then together we can make a huge difference

A Plastic Ocean, Film Screening & Discussion

A PLASTIC OCEAN begins when journalist Craig Leeson, searching for the elusive blue whale, discovers plastic waste in what should be pristine ocean.

Join us for a day of fun in the sun out on the water in Andrews Bay next to Seward Park in Seattle, Washington. A group of local Seattle boat owners and like-minded individuals invested in saving our planet's oceans will be tying up with each other out on the lake.

We will also have ACLS, PALS, and BLS certified healthcare professionals teaching life saving techniques for common emergencies that occur on the water. Bring your boat, kayak, paddleboard, or other fun floatation device and join in on the fun.

We recommend that you pack a lunch, plenty of beverages, and bring a life preserver for each person in your group. Max capacity on each boat should be observed and respected. Follow all local boating laws and follow the directions of the state police and coast guard if approached. Feel free to review life saving algorithms prior to joining us out on the water. Individual boat space is limited so it is important that you supply your own water transportation.
