Old Ladies Against Underwater Garbage

We are a group of old ladies, aged 64-85 and counting, who swim in the freshwater ponds of Cape Cod collecting trash. We are serious about our mission, but as you can maybe tell by our name, we don't take ourselves too seriously.

Our Mission

We swim to remove trash from ponds, channeling the strength of older women and challenging others to see beyond limits to take concrete action to preserve the environment.

"Old Ladies Against Underwater Garbage’s great service is not just cleaning ponds, but spreading the joy that comes from being involved with nature and working to protect it.' - Susan Baur, OLAUG co-founder
