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.

Kiket and Flagstaff Islands: accumulated trash

Just inside Deception Pass in Washington State you will find Kiket and Flagstaff islands, the state's newest park. Here's a newspaper article about the transfer of ownership, etc. We dropped by Flagstaff's south facing beach to pull some garbage off this new park's front porch (so to speak). It's a beautiful place and deserves to be kept clean of human trash.
