Rethink Plastic




We're removing over 29,200 plastic water bottles from the system every year!

About the cause: Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues we face. The rapid increase in the production of disposable plastic products has become nearly impossible to handle.

Plastic trash has become so ubiquitous it is projected that by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. And sadly only 9% of the world’s plastic is recycled.

Let’s get our hands dirty and join the movement!

About the event: Gain valuable knowledge on plastic pollution while learning tangible solutions as you have fun and clean up your community!

Plastic Oceans & WeHero enable companies to help empower youth to reduce plastic pollution. Each employee will clean up garbage and recyclable waste in their local community. Because of your participation, we’re funding a re-usable water bottle for a student across the globe!

Join us for the live event to learn about Plastic Oceans, to connect (and compete) over what we each found during our local clean-up, and to share personal tips and recommendations for reducing our own plastic waste.



Fight against plastic in our oceans just by surfing the web!

The WeHero extension transforms your “new tab” page. Each time you open a tab, you will be greeted with a new image, the amount raised, and a couple of banner ads. We collect ad revenue from the page and use it to donate to the causes you are supporting!

The best part, you see your impact on your chosen cause!

Be a Waste Warrior

We build our volunteer events to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Whether it is offsetting the carbon emissions of the shipping process, using recycled cardboard for the boxes, or relying on algae-based dyes, we’ve made conscious steps to ensure we’re doing right for our world.

However, it’s impossible for us to completely eliminate waste products from the experience. To ensure we limit the impact of these materials, we ask that all participants properly recycle and dispose of the materials they receive.

Recycling is hard so we made this resource list to make it easier!
