The California Coastal Cleanup is an annual event that aims to protect and enhance California's coast and ocean for present and future generations. Volunteers pick up trash from California's coasts and inland waterways while recording the types of trash they find. This data helps policymakers and the public make informed decisions about reducing plastic production and pollution. To date, Coastal Cleanup Day has successfully diverted millions of pounds of plastic debris from the ocean and shoreline.

Nordic Naturals said it has a long-standing commitment to the environment and sustainable sourcing. The company's corporate practices include sustainable sourcing of ingredients and eco-friendly packaging approaches. Nordic's manufacturing facility in Arctic Norway has been recognized for its progressive use of green technology. All fish oil products are Friend of the Sea certified.

Nordic Naturals said it is committed to combating marine pollution, as up to 80% of it stems from land-based sources like runoff, sewage and waste. By employing responsible fishing methods, such as line and net fishing, to prevent seafloor and ecosystem damage, Nordic Naturals said it distinguishes itself from practices like bottom trawling and dredging.
