Thousands of people will amass beaches, rivers, parks and public places throughout the state of California (half a million in total around the planet!) on Saturday, September 16 for “the world’s largest volunteer day” Coastal Cleanup Day.
Coming together — a global movement comprised of local communities and organizations — we’ll make a big dent in removing trash and debris from natural habitats, cities and neighborhoods.
On top of creating a cleaner environment, all of the items that volunteers pick up are recorded to raise even more awareness about our pollution problems. At Coastal Cleanup Day 2016, nearly 800,000 people picked up over 18 million pounds of trash and debris in only a few hours. There’s truly power in numbers.
Once again Heal the Bay will proudly coordinate cleanup locations in Los Angeles County in association with Ocean Conservancy and California Coastal Commission.
