Don't Miss the World's Biggest Volunteer Day!

Coastal Cleanup Day 2013 pollution Los Angeles volunteer Sept. 21

Be part of the solution to pollution! Join your fellow Angelenos on Coastal Cleanup Day (aka the BIGGEST volunteer day on the planet!) on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 from 9 a.m. to noon. This year Heal the Bay will organize more than 60 cleanup locations all over Los Angeles County. A complete list of cleanup sites and more details will be posted on our website later this summer.

In an effort to create more sustainable events, we ask cleanup volunteers to bring their own reusable supplies. All that you need to clean is a bucket to share, one glove to pick up trash and your reusable water bottle to stay hydrated. The more reusable tools you bring to the cleanup, the fewer disposable supplies we waste in this effort.

You can use a lot of different items as a cleanup bucket, such as a sand pail, milk jug, car wash tub, old paint can or even a washable tote bag will do the trick. To be Zero Waste, you just have to get creative.

Last year more than 9000 Angelenos worked together to keep nearly 20 tons of debris from heading to the ocean. Check out more results from last year’s Coastal Cleanup Day.
