Oregon is one of three U.S. States that border the Pacific Ocean. Beaches in Oregon are breath taking with miles of green trees one direction and the Pacific Ocean waves the other. Oregon has more trees then people and with only 3 million or so people who reside in this state. Oregon is known for huge winter waves, king tides, rip tides, and cool waters. Many people visit Oregon to join Ocean Blue in beach cleanups or to watch the whale's in the Pacific Ocean. Oregon has high dessert, valley rivers, lakes, and loads of kayaking, general exploring, rafting, trout, and salmon fishing. The pristine waters make for an adventure you will never forget. Micro Plastic is all over Oregon beaches and we depend on stewards to help remove this said plastic before it breaks down and ends back into our oceans. Learn more about micro plastic.

Ocean is hosting over 200 beach cleanups annually. We remove over 100,000 thousand pounds of micro plastic annually all with goals for protecting the Oregon Coast! Learn more about Ocean Blue Cleanup Events, Create A Cleanup, and Corporate Members. Have question of how to cleanup a beach? Link:
