Coastal Cleanup Day 2014

Be a changing force for the future and defend clean water

Quick Links

Last year, more than 11,000 Angelenos removed 24,000 pounds of trash on September 21 for Coastal Cleanup Day, the largest volunteer day on the planet.

But how much will we clean up THIS year?

Participate in Coastal Cleanup Day at one of over 50 locations throughout LA on Saturday, September 20, and find out.

Why is Coastal Cleanup Day important?

  • Trash in the ocean compromises human and wildlife health, which affects the livelihoods of millions all over the planet. We all need clean water. 
  • Every little piece of paper, cigarette butt or bottle cap that makes its way to street sewers ends up in streams or rivers and eventually down to the ocean. 
  • Oceans are the largest part of our water cycle, generating oxygen and rain necessary to sustain life on Earth.

How do I participate?

  • This page will be updated with a list of cleanup locations when they become available--stay tuned.
  • On September 20th, pick a location, gather your friends and family, and head for the beach!
