Calling all who love our shorelines and want to help make them healthier for people and wildlife. Sunday, September 10th, is the 7th annual Bainbridge Island Beach Cleanup. Sign up here to choose a beach or road end you’d like to scour for litter. We will be awarding a special prize in a random drawing for the craziest piece of trash or for the coolest upcycle/artcycle expression of found beach trash!
Trash travels – via inland waterways, storm drains, sewers, and on the wind, and eventually ends up on coasts and shorelines. If not removed, this debris will end up in the Pacific Ocean. Beach cleanups are a last line of defense – to prevent debris from causing harm to our oceans, to wildlife, to our coastal economies, and even to beach-goers (ouch!). Beach clean-ups work! At last year’s International Coastal Cleanup Day, over 1 million volunteers collected 23 million pounds of trash.
