There are just two more days until our 30th annual International Coastal Cleanup, and I hope you’ll be there!
There’s still time to join a Cleanup near you!
You’ll be in good company joining hundreds of thousands of volunteers around the world to help pitch in and clean up our beaches. Last year, we cleaned up a staggering 16 million pounds of trash together. In fact, over the last 30 years, volunteers like you have helped clean up a grand total of 200 million pounds of trash!
That’s one heck of a mountain of plastic bottles, cigarette butts, straws, food wrappers and other waste that would otherwise have washed out to sea and quite possibly ended up in the belly of a seabird, sea turtle or other marine animal.
By participating in the Cleanup, you may be saving a sea turtle’s or a sea bird’s life. And you’ll have taken an important step towards addressing the global threat of plastics in the ocean.
See you on the beach!
