On Saturday, September 16th, 2023, the Nudi Wear team prepared for our fifth cleanup in three years at Waiāhole Beach Park. Waiāhole Beach Park is an overlooked beached on the windward side of Oahu. It has beautiful views of the Kualoa Mountain Range and Mokoli’i Island, also known as Chinaman’s Hat. However, it also has a major trash problem. Nets, buoys, and plastics wash in from the ocean, trash flows downstream to the beach, and people often ignorantly discard items in the park too. We have made it a mission of ours to adopt this beach and keep it as clean as possible. Over the three years we have been monitoring it, we have found numerous hammerhead pups, turtles, sea birds, and fish that have been impacted by the large amount of pollution and illegal fishing that occurs here. Prior to this cleanup, we have removed nearly 14,000 pounds of trash from this one beach and the surrounding shoreline.
