Oceans cover 71% of our planet. They provide up to 70% of the oxygen we breathe. And they need 100% of our help.
On September 20, join hundreds of thousands of other volunteers around the world -- including over 10,000 Los Angeles residents -- in showing some love for our most valuable natural resource.
What is Coastal Cleanup Day?
Quite possibly, it's the world's biggest beach party.
Volunteers from Huntington Beach to Hong Kong will do their part to clean up their local beaches, rivers, creeks and parks on Saturday, September 20.
Last year alone, 648,015 volunteers in 92 countries collected over 12 MILLION pounds of ocean-bound garbage. There's no other single-day volunteer event that even comes close to the impact of Coastal Cleanup Day.
1. Pick a cleanup site. We’ve got over 50. Check out the map! We have beach cleanups, inland cleanups—even underwater Scuba cleanups!
2. Register. RSVP via Eventbrite to give us an idea of how many people to prepare for. It’ll also send you a reminder closer to the cleanup. (You only need to bring your completed waiver to your cleanup site--please don't print out your registration!)
3. Fundraise. Cleaning up 30+ miles of coast isn’t cheap. Register on our FirstGiving site to raise much-needed funds for Heal the Bay.
4. Be there! Better start setting those alarm clocks. We need you at 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 20!
join the thunderclap!
We're using Thunderclap to get the word out and local startup Klickly to bring some funding in. If you use Facebook or Twitter, please help us reach our goal: We need 250 Thunderclap participants to make a massive, simultaneous tweet go out on Saturday morning! If we succeed, the virtual "butterfly effect" of the Thunderclap could be, well...thunderous!
