Shoreline Cleanup

Our Ocean & Shoreline Cleanup Program

Our community outreach includes our Shoreline Cleanup Project. For each mask you purchase, we remove a piece of trash from the ocean shoreline. Check back here for photo and video updates of past and current cleanups.

Maskelle Masks 2020 Shoreline Cleanup Thank You Video

As part of our 2020 Kickstarter, we initiated our Shoreline Cleanup Program. We have since hosted numerous cleanup days here in the beautiful Florida Keys. We are very close to the reef here (3 to 7 miles, approx.), and we have so many marine mammals living in our waters. All of the trash that is left, or collects, on our shores, is only one heavy rain or king tide away from open ocean. In addition to the constant culprits of plastic bottles and other assorted trash, we remove lots and lots of abandoned marine rope from the shorelines. In addition to contributing to plastics on our oceans, this marine rope causes entanglements and other harms (such as when ingested) to our marine mammals. Even when our humble cleanup days start to feel small and futile, I remember that getting this discarded rope off of the shoreline could have a direct impact on my marine mammal neighbors, creatures that I share this beautiful island paradise with. This video included a list of contributors names. We can't thank you enough for supporting our project!!

Thank you to all of our customers, Kickstarter contributors, and Phil Cohen!
