  • Maintain the value of genuine beach sea glass, through education.
  • Provide a forum and knowledge base for sea glass enthusiasts to communicate with other individuals who share their passion for genuine beach sea glass.
  • Publish a biannual newsletter for our retail, and artisan members as well as the community of sea glass enthusiasts.
  • Sponsor sea glass festivals that will benefit both sea glass collectors, retailers, and artisans.
  • Establish a standard by which to grade and appraise sea glass.
  • Assist the work of protecting and restoring waterways and coastlines around the world, by mobilizing members, making donations and educating the public.
