Portland, ME to Portland, OR trip makes a splash for Save The Wave campaign
Just twenty years old, Josh Snell can't legally purchase a 6-pack – but he's doing everything he can to make sure the rings don't end up in our oceans.

To support the effort, Snell launched an awareness and fund-raising traveling apparel company called Save The Wave. He has set the lofty goal of donating one million dollars to Ocean Conservancy. Only a month into his project, his Go Fund Me alone has already raised over three thousand dollars.
It all started with a humble inventory of 100 hoodies purchased using money Josh saved up working as a server at a local restaurant in his hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania. After quickly doubling his investment, Josh took his operation to the next level by teaming up with a screen printer to convert secondhand clothing from thrift stores into "Save the Wave" branded merchandise. With profits from these efforts and the help of his skilled friends, Josh was able to purchase a small bus and convert it to a mobile shop and living space he nicknamed The Wave Saver.
In early August of 2019, Josh set out on cross country expedition in his bus in which he plans to follow the Atlantic coast, hug the USA / Mexico border and then work his way up the Pacific. All the while, he is stopping wherever he can to educate people about the threats our oceans face and encouraging them to spread the message with his T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, jackets, fanny packs and other responsibly produced merchandise. Revenue generated from sales keeps his wheels rolling and the rest goes to the non-profit, Ocean Conservancy.
Save The Wave Is already making a splash on major social media platforms.
