About Us


What is Surface 71?

Surface 71 is a 501C3 non-profit organization ran solely by students. We started out in middle school then went through Palm Beach Philanthropy Tank and were awarded $12,000. Through PBPT we were able to kick start our project. We hold beach clean ups every month and have installed water refill stations into four local schools. Our mission is to raise awareness about plastic pollution and keep out city and oceans cleaner and more beautiful.
