Disposable PPE like gloves, masks, and wipes are being littered near our beaches and ocean, acting as the newest form of ocean pollution. While these items are critical for public health, littering has never been and will never be okay. 

Use the hashtag #HawaiiPPEDebris to share your photos of PPE litter you see. Be careful when you pick these items up!

We also recommend the community choose reusable options for PPE and to wash them regularly per CDC guidelines.
