DECISION

A fast, first look at "Decision," a new film from the Ikkatsu Project, coming out in 2019.
Special thanks to: Lush cosmetics, Cape Decision Lighthouse Society, Surfrider Foundation, Klean Kanteen, Werner Paddles and Kokatat. And an extra-special thanks to all the volunteers that made it happen. Can't wait to do it again!

In a Nutshell

Since the Ikkatsu Project came together in 2012, every year has been a little different. While we remain focused on single-use plastic and the effects that plastic has in the marine environment, there are different ways to bring that message and to have a positive impact on the issues.

Data collection and analysis, education and outreach are the three main focus areas for 2019. We will be expanding and standardizing the data we collect, making it available for different user groups and other collaborations. Education, whether in a school classroom or as a part of a larger program, is key to what the Ikkatsu Project does. Outreach is an idea that encompasses presentations and film screenings, races and panelist opportunities. And more.

The Ikkatsu Project is funded by donations. We don't do a lot of fundraising events around here, no elaborate galas or black-tie events, but that doesn't mean we don't need your support. What we can promise is the chance to see all of your contribution get put toward marine debris research and education, your gift making so many good programs possible. Thanks to all who have already contributed (and if you would like to be a part of it all, the "Donate" button is on the right side of this page. Any amount helps and the gratitude runs deep).
