Please check our facebook page for news, photos, and videos from LBI as we continue to recover from Hurricane Sandy.

Alliance for a Living Ocean was created in 1987 to put an end to ocean dumping. Since that time, ALO has continued efforts to stop pollution and protect our coastal environment. Through the dedicated work of our volunteers, ALO strives to keep our oceans, beaches, and bays clean.

Join us in helping to promote and maintain clean water and a healthy coastal environment through education and action.

Bottle Cap Recycling Program Takes Hiatus

ALO’s Bottle Cap Recycling Program is being put on hold as we secure more funding for shipping costs. Caps are shipped to Aveda where they are properly recycled. So far in 2012, we have shipped 700 lbs. of caps to be recycled! Check back for the re-opening of this important program.

ALO’s Surf Stewards Program Expands

ALO’s Surf Stewards Program was created to teach surf instructors how to give a short lesson to their students on the importance of being environmentally friendly. The program has now expanded to include the entire surf community. Check out the Surf Stewards page and sign the Surf Stewards Pledge!
