Global Beach Cleanup

Did you know that Americans use and throw away over 500 million plastic straws every single day?


Did you know that over 8 million tons of plastic enter our world’s oceans every year?


Did you know that humans throw away more than 25 billion disposable coffee cups each year?


Ocean debris kills nearly one million sea creatures every single year. 




Saving dolphins and whales is about more than just ending the captivity trade. Empty the Tanks believes that ocean conservation is just as vital to the survival of all cetaceans. We must provide a clean habitat for dolphins, whales, and all ocean creatures.

Please join Empty the Tanks as we clean up our oceans and shores. You can join from anywhere in the world, even if you don’t have an ocean near you. Every piece of plastic and debris that you clean up is one less that will find its way into the ocean.

Get your friends and family together and make it an afternoon dedicated to cleaning up our world. Be sure and post your photos so we can feature them as well. If you decide to organize a beach clean up in your area and you would like us to share your event page with others, please send us the link.

Thank you for your support of Empty the Tanks! Let’s clean up the ocean together!
