Coastal Cleanup Day 2013
Be a changing force for the future and defend clean water
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.
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.
