Clean up the Coast this Saturday!

September 15, 2011

This coming Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, folks the world over are rolling up their sleeves to help make our planet’s coasts cleaner. Each September, this international emphasis on clean coasts reaches from rocky Nordic crags to sunny southern sands. Hundreds of thousands of people participate. You should too!

The nonprofit Ocean Conservancy has spearheaded international coastal cleanup for the past 25 years. What really sets this work apart is that the collected trash isn’t just disposed of. It is categorized and logged, piece by piece.

Tracking the types of trash threatening our waters helps researchers, environmental advocates and policy makers take informed action to address the most threatening sources of waste and marine debris.

Learn more about the Ocean Conservancy’s work at their Trash Free Seas page, then sign up to help out at a coastal cleanup near you! (Our friends and neighbors here in California will be working directly with the California Coastal Commission.)

Hope to see you out there this Saturday, September 16th!
