Our Bold Box founders, Olivia Dahan and Kira Cahill have worked in ocean conservation since 2007. In 2016, they founded the Oceana Young Leaders Council, which is a subgroup of Oceana. The Oceana Young Leaders Council hosts Beach Cleanups throughout the year in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas.
An estimated 10 million metric tons of plastic enters the ocean each year. That is equivalent to one garbage truck full of trash being unloaded in our oceans every minute. Our beach cleanups serve to raise awareness and inspire individuals to adopt upstream solutions to stop plastic waste at the source.UPCOMING BEACH CLEANUP DATES:
