This is How You Paddle Green

We love our members! The Hustons (pictured above) frequently paddle the Potomac River near their home in West Virginia and use their Paddle Green Bags to pick up any trash they encounter along the way. It takes a little extra effort to pick up that single-use plastic bottle floating on the water's surface, or the plastic bag washed up on the shore, but these small acts have a huge positive impact on waterways and wildlife. 

An estimated 6.14 million tons of debris enter marine environments each year. And 80% of this debris is land-based trash that enters oceans via freshwater rivers and streams. 

As paddlers, we can make a difference! Are you doing your part? Join the ACA Stream to Sea Initiative today and help stop marine debris at its source. Whenever you grab your paddle, make sure you grab a Paddle Green Bag, too. 

Thank you for being an ACA member! Together, we're making the world a better place to paddle.
