ROPE ("Ridding the Ocean of Plastic Enthusiasts") is a luncheon group comprised of people interested in sharing resources and learning more about plastic, microplastic and marine debris in the Ocean.  There is no financial commitment other than paying for your lunch.  

The idea is to raise awareness and create a networking environment for environmentally minded philanthropists and organizations working on solutions to Ocean plastic.  Working together is our best shot at solving some of these challenging problems.  

Silicon Valley Community Foundation
2440 W El Camino Real #300, Mountain View, CA 94040

We will meet 6 times a year.  Anyone interested may come.  You can also join our Google group to receive periodic invitations and to participate in the ongoing conversation.
