The Mission of Algalita Marine Research and Education is...

"To lead the world to a plastic pollution free future."


Founded in 1994, the Algalita Marine Research & Education are the foremost experts on plastic pollution with over 20 years of experience working to understand and solve the problem. Our organization was the first to expose the severity of plastic in our ocean after our Founder, Captain Charles Moore, discovered the swirling soup of plastic pollution in the Pacific – now known by many as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

4As leaders in the movement to end plastic pollution, we educate and equip local and global influencers with the knowledge and resources needed to ignite true change in behavior, habits, policy, and beyond. The Algalita Marine Research and Education is located in Long Beach, CA at: 148 N Marina Dr, Long Beach CA 90903.
