The Plan

We will raise funds to help MJ and Clean This Beach Up have more impact! Marias clean ups and events raise awarness for huge groups. We are raising our first round for things like tents, equipment like gloves, wagons, collection tools, transport for waste collected and seperated, marketing for more reach. Our next steps are to help Clean This Beach Up open a facility to sort, recycle, and upcycle the plastic picked up during the cleanups.


Marias has funded Cean This Beach Up on her own, having spent more than $5,000 of her own money for equipment. She is awesome and a great networker and has found support from local partners and groups as well.

About the project

Living in Miami Beach and seeing the transition for years of more and more plastic washing up in our beaches and the increment of street litter, made me think twice about my own waste and plastic usage. Traveling around the world and realizing it’s a global crisis motivated me to be the change, and that’s how I started Clean This Beach Up, saving our oceans 1 pound at a time. 

Educating people about the effects of plastic pollution and how to live a more sustainable life through weekly cleanups and educational programs.
