Seabins

Boardwalk

Seaside Sustainability is the exclusive agent of Seabin, an innovative marine debris and oil waste intervention product, for the New England and New York region. These Seabins make direct contributions to cleaning the harbors and marinas they are located in while also educating the general public on the harms of marine debris. While the Seabin can help reduce the marine debris problem, education is the solution. Through the development of an educational curriculum, the Seabin team seeks to build partnerships with various organizations to utilize the Seabin as an educational tool. If you want to see the work you do make an actual impact, this team is a great fit for you; the more Seabins that get distributed equates to greater amounts of plastics and oil being removed from our waterways as well as larger audiences learning of the dangers of marine debris (specifically plastic), ultimately moving us towards sustainability goals!
