About

We love the planet. You love the planet. But what can we do to save it? Really small stuff actually, think: little earthworms foraging through the dirt changing everything in their little path. But like, together. Ya know?
Join us on this mission to help connect all of our efforts in the hopes to create a healthier planet. We specifically concentrate on itsy bitsy pieces of plastic called microplastics. They start off as normal pieces of manufactured plastic, like perhaps a water bottle, yet survive the elements and end up in our oceans. They are the bits that are left when that water bottle has been chewed up by animals or burned away by the sun of caught in the propellers or a boat or whatever. They are the little hardy pieces of plastic that weathered the storm (less than 5mm) and they often are never destroyed. So where do they end up? Back in our water, maybe inside of our glasses or on our dinner plates. Wish we could just create some technology to scoop them all up? We do too. We aren’t there yet but we are creating a study to help us get closer.

In the meantime, we will use our research to create education for underserved youth and use microplastics as a niche for their higher education. We will partner with universities and groups of scientists that can help the next generation fight this from the ground up. We need partners and we need people. Let this Patreon be a place where everyone that cares can come together and create ideas, answers, and connections. Let’s be a community of lumbricina= latin for earthworms! (Lumby for short!)

Your pledge will help us build out our infrastructure as we become non-profit and move to the next phase of our project: the education pilot program! We THANK you!
