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!

2018, and Beyond

2018 isn't over yet, but the chill is in the air and football is on TV, so it can't have too much further to go. This has been, without a doubt, the busiest year ever for the Ikkatsu Project. Between the Sumner freshwater microplastics monitoring program, the coastal monitoring and cleanup efforts on remote beaches in Washington and Alaska, the upcoming Tacoma Shoreline Survey, another trip to DC to talk with elected representatives about ocean issues and a crazy race on a kayak made out of plastic that had washed ashore, this has been the kind of a year that will definitely be remembered. Throw in a spring Social (there will definitely be another one of those next year), and beginning a new film centered around the 2018 South Kuiu Cleanup in southeast Alaska, next year is starting to look pretty active as well.
Please check in with the journal for a recap and more information. And thank you to all who have supported the Ikkatsu Project with your time, money and good will throughout the years.
There is still plenty to be done.
