Please take a look at our Gear List below to ensure you are properly prepared and equipped. We strongly discourage the use of any single-use plastic at our beach cleanups.
Schedule & What To Expect:
9:00am – 9:30am | Check-In & Morning Brief
We will all gather by the designated meet-up point to go over all the information and route details before we kick off. We will be handing out the buckets and bags as well.
9:30am – 11:00am | Service The Area
We will kick off the cleanup by following the designated route and servicing the area for trash, recyclables, and debris. (Around 1-3 miles)
11:00am – 11:15am | Collect Trash & Sort
After we service the area we then head back and weigh the collected trash. From there we dump it out onto a tarp and sort through the materials looking for the items, such as glass, plastics, bottle caps, or cigarette butts so they are to be disposed of properly.
11:15am – 11:30am | Education Brief & Closing Remarks
During the separation process, our Team Leader and supporting Eco Warriors will close out the event by educating the volunteers on conservation, sustainability, and environmentalism.
For all of our Active Duty who need an L.O.A. or our volunteers who need community service hours, during your registration be sure to answer “Yes” when asked.
Great for families. Bring the kids and friends to beach cleanups and restoration projects. See where plastics end up and why it’s important to reduce plastic use and commit to more sustainable agriculture and fishing with less adverse human impact.
Be sure to RSVP, sign a waiver (if applicable) and check with the mentioned organizer to confirm details in advance.
Some snorkel, dive or beach cleanups may require proper certification and being comfortable in or around the water and familiar with water safety. If you have any additional questions, feel free to reach out. Mahalo 🤙
