Whatever you paddle, join us in paddling 25,000 miles around the world for global change. Each mile paddled supports our Global Youth Mentor (GYM) program, empowering youth to take action on plastic pollution in their local communities. We believe in widespread, lasting change through local grassroots campaigns. The projects of Youth Leaders have already diverted 2,000,000 utensils from the waste stream and since we focus on lasting upstream solutions, those numbers increase year-by-year.
Three Easy Steps
Post a photo of your paddle to instagram, tag @plastictides, and add #paddlearoundtheworld
Just like with plastic pollution, every small change makes a big difference. You don’t have to paddle far to help us create positive change. 25,000 paddlers paddling one mile each will get us to the finish line in exactly the same way as fifty paddlers paddling 500 miles each.
Looking to paddle more miles than you can donate alone? Create a crowdfunding campaign with the link below and get your friends who don’t paddle in on the fun!
