Starboard Trash Picker to Come Standard with Paddles

Bone Island 6-Mile Paddle Race, Lazy Dog Key West This weekend!

I'm not sure if you're as cold as I am, but the thought of Key West sounds amazing to me right now—especially when facing down the 12+ feet of snow or freezing cold rain we've had in the past few weeks....

Starboard Adds Trash Picking Device to Paddles

What an ingenious, simple, clever idea! And another example of how Starboard is leading the way when it comes to helping protect the aquatic environment we all love!!

Details from Starboard’s Facebook page:

“Sometimes it’s the simple things that make all the difference. That’s why we’ve added one little tool to every paddle we make: the Starboard Paddle Pick, a tool that makes grabbing trash out of the water as simple as taking another stroke. This small addition to our paddles will help us help the United Nations with their upcoming Clean Seas campaign – helping to turn the tide the tide on ocean plastics.

It’s removable if you’re lining up for a race or packing your paddle, and easy to attach for everyday paddling. It’s a favorite for our Trash Hero projects, where the Starboard HQ team gets together with local kids in Bangkok, Thailand to help clean up the local lakes and rivers.

How can you use it? It’s easy – just do your normal paddle, and keep your eyes open. Spot something in the water that isn’t supposed to be there? One stroke to grab it – stash it in a pocket, or keep a small reusable bag of your own on hand.

It doesn’t sound like much – but it adds up. And if every paddle we sell has a paddle pick, and every one uses it every time they paddle – that’s quite a lot of trash.”

We want one…or maybe a couple!!
