One Beach is a marine conservation movement that calls on the clout, culture and convincing power of artists around the world to achieve an increasingly rare feat: a barefoot-friendly beach.

Most of North America and Europe's sandy coasts have garbage, discarded plastics and dangerously sharp materials strewn everywhere. Not only is it unsightly and eco-unfriendly, but can lead to cuts and infections. In the hopes of accomplishing a surprisingly doable objective, the renowned surf filmmaker Jason Baffa teamed up with Barefoot Wine to create One Beach, an eye-opening short film that follows the artists who've devoted themselves to cleaning their local (or foreign) beaches. From the creative-types behind conservation awareness campaigns to the artists who raise money and draw attention to the marine crises we're currently facing, it's all covered in One Beach.
