Where we come from

Back in 1989, surfer Paul Polizzotto got mad. Toxic run-off was polluting the ocean he loved, and he decided to stop it. Paul didn’t have enough money to solve the problem himself, but he realized that businesses did. By directing the millions of dollars spent on advertising to ocean clean-up, companies could do real good while also reaching consumers in a new and compelling way. But why stop at ocean clean-up?

Paul founded EcoMedia in 2001, and the company has since expanded to fund a variety of environmental, health and wellness, education, animal welfare, and veterans’ projects while helping business reach audiences more effectively through their traditional advertising campaigns. In over 15 years, the team has directed more than $80 million in funding, served more than 30 million people, and won numerous awards for social innovation and impact.
