CUREFOREARTH.org was started because of the growing sea of plastic consuming every ocean and beach on our planet
Our founder, David Weinberg, fell in love with the ocean and marine wildlife at a very young age. As a young boy his parents took him to the beach, and taught him to snorkel. He and his brothers grew up on the South Florida coast, swimming, diving, and surfing.
As the modern world raced forward, chasing every new technological advancement, little concern was placed on the effects of modernization on the marine environment. Every year David saw the oceans filling up with huge quantities of plastic!
As a surfer David started to see the plastic washing up on the sand, so he would fill up a bag full, and remove it from the beach.
As a boat captain, David noticed the accumulation of more and more plastic debris, floating far out in the ocean.
So he started to remove the discarded ghost nets, plastic, and then cutting free turtles that were entangled, and suffocating.
Today our mission has a global reach, so join us, make a purchase and save a life!
