Protecting the health and sustainability of our planet's most precious resource.

The Blue Water Task Force is Surfrider’s volunteer water quality monitoring program that provides critical information to protect public health at the beach. Surfrider chapters use this program to raise awareness of local pollution problems and to bring communities together to implement solutions.
Hold on to Your Butt!
Cigarette butts accounted for 59% of litter items collected at our beach clean-ups in 2016 and remain the most prevalent litter picked up during our beach clean-ups. The Hold On To Your Butt (HOTYB) program aims to raise awareness about the environmental impact of cigarette butt litter on our oceans and beaches. Our program is heavily focused on installing ashcans, recycling cigarette butts, and collecting cigarette waste at monthly beach clean-ups.
