Welcome to the new blog for Team OSOM! This is the place to stay up to date on our Trashpeditions, photos, videos, and our Never Ending Cleanup Contest.

There's much to report as we prep for our first documentary film project. We've dubbed it the "Portland to the Ocean Trashpedition".

Beginning May 5th, 2012, we're paddling our sea  kayaks from Portland to the Ocean with canoes in tow to serve as "garbage barges" to collect all the trash we find on this 100+ mile journey to the Columbia River's terminus at the Pacific Ocean. Our goal is to show the path plastic pollution takes from purchase and consumption at a downtown convenience store, to the storm drain, into the river, all the way to the ocean and it's eventual convergence with the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. By documenting our efforts to stop plastic litter from making it's way to sea, we hope to inspire others to do the same.

Stay tuned for posts about events and preparations leading up to launch day on May 6th!
