Zero Trash, Zero Excuse

Did you know the largest source of pollution in the Bay is from runoff from city streets, and most of this pollution is ordinary trash? 

Trash pollution is a serious threat to water quality, wildlife, and public health. In fact, 27 local waterways are so choked with trash, they are in violation of the Clean Water Act. In almost every city, this trashy runoff flows directly into the Bay, untreated.

The fact is, while some cities are doing better than others, most Bay Area cities are not doing everything they can to measure, report, and eliminate the trash they allow to flow into the Bay.

But we can make a difference: 

Sign our Zero Trash Pledge or volunteer to help clean up and restore a Bay shoreline site near you.
