This site is dedicated to bringing awareness to the need for care and clean-up of our beaches and water systems. It is a celebration of the majesty and beauty and inspirational qualities of our oceans and beaches, as well as a siren calling attention to the urgent need to save these precious habitats, be aware of and do all we can to reverse the harm being done to our oceans and marine life. We are all interconnected. The sickness of one system in our world creates failure in all other systems. It is time we move forward and educate ourselves and each other and save our oceans, waterways, and beaches!

A personal note from the site owner:

The reason why I started this site in 2008 was my disgust at the conditions at local beaches where I lived. While walking along the shore in Brooklyn, NY, I stepped on some of the many fragments of candles, plastic tampon applicators, sanitary napkins and other garbage that overflowed out of an archaic sewer system that overflowed into the ocean as storm runoff on a regular basis. I researched this issue on the internet and found a couple of organizations calling for action. I was inspired to gather as much information as I could in an online article repository to share developments around the world pertaining to dumping, water health, and clean-up initiatives. During this time our rising CO2 levels were a focus, the BP oil spill happened, and I kept collecting articles on the same issues that seemed to repeat in topic and never resolve.

Having grown up in Southern California always near a beach, I am not alone in my sentiment that the beach is a rejuvenating,  inspiring and healing atmosphere to visit. The ocean is majestic, soothing, moving, and healing. What other venue gives so much just by being? Hardly any other environments on earth are so coveted to live by and visit. We should not take the beach for granted. We should not take our oceans nor our waterways for granted. We depend on these aquatic ecosystems and their precious water for our very life.

So, take a look at the beach you live near or do some research on the web if you don’t have a beach nearby. There are some serious pollution and safety problems on our beaches, ranging from hardcore toxic leakage and wildlife endangerment to safety concerns for the human visitors with toxic water, broken glass and sewage runoff build-up on the beach and in the water — Not a good way to take care of one of the most blissful places available to us! So it’s time we focus, as we focus on the health of our entire world, on our essential health of our oceans and beaches. I hope you join me in the cause to Save Our Beaches and all of our water resources.
