Nonprofit organization Aloha Ocean Plus
Our mission is to use both beach and underwater cleanup efforts to meet 2030 Hawaiian statewide sustainability goals, also known as the Aloha+ Challenge. The founder, being initially from Japan, was inspired to form Aloha Ocean Plus after finding a disproportionate amount of plastic debris washing up on Hawaiian beaches from Japan and other Asian countries.
Additionally, responsible tourism is a primary focus of ours. We, at Aloha Ocean Plus feel a sense of responsibility to educate tourists to treat the Hawaiian marine environment with reverence and respect, commonly known in Hawaii as the Aloha Spirit.
