Save the Waves

Save the Waves (STW) is happy to announce the online debut of a new short video “Unidos por Aguas Limpias” (United for Clean Water) directed by Sachi Cunningham and produced by Katie Westfall. The video documents STW's recently launched Unidos por Aguas Limpias Campaign, which was jumpstarted with a series of beach cleanups along the Chilean coast.

On March 24th, more than 600 volunteers gathered at 16 sites in nine regions to cleanup and restore beaches and coastal areas throughout Chile. In an unprecedented day of cleanups, volunteers removed nearly 9,000 pounds of trash and debris (more than 500 bags), cleaning and restoring beaches, river mouths, and estuaries along more than 15 miles of Chilean coastline. 

Following the devastating earthquake-tsunami of 2010, coastal communities throughout Chile are still rebuilding to this day, which also means continuing to care for the coast and ocean.
