Beach Cleanups

DO YOUR PART

The Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter and San Diego Coastkeeper coordinate public beach cleanups several times each month.

Join us this month, and help us Rise Above Plastics by bringing your own reusable supplies and reducing your plastic footprint!

Reusable bags, buckets, gloves and grabbers will be available for those who do not have their own supplies. Wear comfortable clothes, closed toed shoes, a hat and sunscreen. Also, don’t forget your reusable cup or bottle, as water will be provided, but cups are limited.

SPONSOR A CLEANUP

Help protect our oceans waves and beaches by sponsoring a public cleanup or hosting a private one.  Sponsoring a cleanup helps establish your company as a good corporate citizen and brand loyalty.  Cleanups can also be used to encourage employees to be engaged in their community, as well as strengthen employee team building and morale.

PREPARE YOUR GROUP

Remind everyone to wear comfortable clothes, closed toed shoes, a hat and sunscreen. Don’t forget your reusable cup or bottle, and skip the lines by downloading and filling out the group waiver ahead of time!
