Wasteless World


Wasteless World –  Be a part of eliminating plastic waste as well as the invasive species of lionfish from our lush archipelago. Wasteless World Warriors are not only cleaning up the plastic that is leaching chemicals into our precious waters and earth; they are creating resources and jobs from the unfortunate waste and providing education for our future generations. This education spreads to the local fisherman to give them the necessary tools and knowledge to catch the lionfish and, in turn, give them an income by purchasing the fish from them. Wasteless World provides lionfish filets for the public’s culinary at-home adventures and they also make gorgeous jewelry from the venomous spines of this nasty species.

Support Wasteless World by donation and by voluteering with the Warriors
