THE SEABIN

Seaside Sustainability proudly utilizes Seabins in our effort to clean local waterways. Seabins act as floating garbage cans, by intercepting floating debris, collecting macro and micro plastics, and even trapping surface oils and detergents

THE END OF SINGLE-USE PLASTIC

Together with our allies, we advocated successfully for citywide bans on single-use plastics in Gloucester, Essex, and Rockport. We have now shared the documents we used with the public, so that others can use them to take action in their communities.

CONSERVE AND ENRICH

We believe that art can inform and inspire people to support a more sustainable world. Our collaboration with local Gloucester schools has produced bold and engaging student-created public art projects.

150 Million Gallons Filtered

Our marine debris trawls filter microplastics and macroplastics directly from ocean water along Cape Ann. With each gallon filtered, we remove harmful, non-biodegradable substances that can hurt our local wildlife.

BY THE NUMBERS

550 Students Educated in the Field

Through our marine science programs, more than 550 students have participated in hands-on experiences with endangered ecosystems, invasive species, and more.
