Coastal Cleanup Day on September 20
th is an inspiring event where people around the world gather to pick up trash and celebrate IYOR! Please note that “
Coastal” no longer means cleanups
only take place in coastal areas. It includes trash and other contaminants from high up in a watershed that wash down to beaches and oceans below. Find a location near you and join this global effort. If your city, state, or country is not involved yet, be a pioneer and plan your own cleanup! The
California Coastal Commission, and
Heal the Bay offer ideas on how to get started, but all you really need are trash/recycling bags and a group of people ready to clean-up their neighborhood… and the world’s oceans.
