$5,000 Goal

Our mission is to fight back against plastic and all forms of pollution in our global environment, both on land and under the surface, starting with Donner Lake, Lake Tahoe and beyond. To date, our cleanup teams have removed over 18,215 pounds of trash from Lake Tahoe. 

Through data collection, collaborating with environmental scientists, extensive research dives and outreach in the community we have discovered pollution issues within the community and under the surface of numerous lakes in the Tahoe Basin including Lake Tahoe. To tackle these issues we perform scuba clean ups and implement litter mitigation strategies in areas of need.

Our NPO’s flagship project is the first ever human powered circumnavigation of Lake Tahoe using SCUBA, and projected to be the largest trash-clean up in Lake Tahoe’s history, currently underway. The project is presented by Tahoe Blue Vodka and Tahoe Fund.


Clean Up The Lake's mission is to fight back against plastic and pollution in our global environment, starting with Lake Tahoe & The Cayes In Belize.
