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.

Garbage on the beaches of Hawaii - video

Here's a BBC story about plastic garbage washing up on the beaches of Hawaii.

You know, on the one hand, stories like this make me feel helpless. On the other hand, it adds fuel to my fire to keep working on my local waterways, one item of trash at a time. As we've mentioned before on GarbageScows, we can see a difference when we've been picking up trash along our favorite stretches of water.

Let's keep doing our small part.
