Alex Weber and Jack Johnston, live in a beatiful place and love their surrounding beach and ocean home of Carmel Beach. So much so that they have dedicated a lot of time and effort to cleaning up golf balls and spreading awareness around the globe.
For many years, the pristine golf course of Pebble Beach that lies above has been polluting the waters below with fallen golf balls. Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary protects the waters and creatures of this area and this is a concern for both the water and marine life. Another toxin to add to the pollution and plastics already existing in our waters.
The two teens have formed a 501(c)(3), The Plastic Pick-up, and plan on continuing their efforts beyond balls.
