The OSOM crew is busy prepping for our upcoming "Portland to the Ocean Trash-pedition", and we need your help to make it happen. We've come as far as we can go on our limited budget working as kayak guides, and we're still quite a ways away from securing the camera equipment necessary to make this happen. If you feel inclined to contribute to the success of this project, please click this link to our Facebook Donate Page for secure donations via PayPal. Thank you!
We're paddling our sea kayaks from Portland to the Ocean - April 7-11th, 2012, with canoes in tow to serve as garbage barges to collect all the trash we find on this 100+ mile journey to the Columbia River's terminus at the Pacific Ocean. Our goal is to document the path of plastic pollution from purchase and consumption at a downtown convenience store to the storm drain, into the river, all the way to the ocean, and it's eventual convergence with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. By documenting our efforts to stop plastic litter from making it's way to sea, we hope to inspire others to do the same.
We're trying to raise $1500 for this trip. We need a few more cameras, memory cards, batteries & solar chargers..... a website, media packets, and money to cover shipping costs of prizes for our cleanup contest. The list goes on! Anything helps...$5, $10, $500....It all adds up! Please support our project by donating or sharing with your friends.
