Exped LLC is a small company and we all happen to be paddlers with a passion for adventure. It saddens us to see trash in the waters and on the beaches where we paddle - whether that's far from home on a remote beach or on our home stretch of water. The stuff is everywhere! It's ugly, dangerous to life, and it needs to be removed. That's what is all about - removing the trash we see from the waters we love.

It's quite simple and our little tagline says it all:

Take only trash, leave only swirls.

When we paddle, we pick up trash in our human powered craft and we invite you to do the same. Spread the word and let's turn our kayaks and canoes into Garbage Scows!

See you on the water.

Packing Peanuts!

Had a nice paddle on the home stretch of water, but I ran into a few of my least favorite pieces of garbage - packing peanuts. These things are, in my humble opinion, one of the worst inventions of the human race. OK, so maybe they're not quite that bad, but I still can't stand them. These things are used once and then get tossed and some of them end up in places they shouldn't be.

Listen...we can do without these things. Crumpled up pieces of paper do the same thing for your shipping needs and won't blow down your street when the garbage truck breaks open your trash bag on pickup day.

Garbage bag equivalent: 1

Tennis balls: 26
