Clean Up the Lake's mission is to clean and beautify the Lake Tahoe Basin.

The group’s founders ultimately seek to fight back against plastic and all forms of pollution in the global environment, both on land and under the surface, and they are starting first in Lake Tahoe and Belize.

Why Tahoe? The Clean Up the Lake team reports that through data collection, collaboration with environmental scientists, and extensive research scuba dives, they have discovered many issues with pollution along the shore and under the lake’s surface. 

Thos interested in helping can sign up for the mailing list, donate funds, or join volunteers on a cleanup scuba dive operation.
