DIVE IN WITH US
Our oceans, seas, wetlands, and estuaries are threatened. At Seaside Sustainability, we're passionate about protecting and restoring our waterways and communities through education and action. Get involved. Together, we can make a difference.
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.
Our internship application portals are now open as of February 15th! Apply for our Summer 2021 session (held from April 19th to August 27th). All of our current projects are fully remote. Our teams work on a variety of projects, all with real-world impacts on the local and global level. Applications close on March 31st.
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.
3 Successful Single-Use Bans
Seaside has led successful campaigns in Gloucester, Rockport, and Essex to replace single-use plastics with biodegradable alternatives. In fact, Rockport now boasts one of the most comprehensive plastic bans in the country!
