BAINBRIDGE ISLAND BEACH CLEANUP

Beach cleanup participants in 2018.

Vast amounts of plastic debris litter the world’s oceans causing all manner of harm, and most of this debris comes from land. Our beaches are collecting spots for trash from city streets and highways.

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 800,000 volunteers collected 18 million pounds of trash.

This year, Bainbridge Island is joining the fight to conserve and cleanup our beautiful shoreline. Won’t you join us?

Want to form a team of friends, neighbors or a family? We’d love that! In fact, we’re really trying to clean up as many of those 53 miles of shoreline we can.

Ocean Conservancy recommends use of their Clean Swell app: a fun and easy way to keep track of the trash you collect. The app is free and available to download on both iOS and Android systems.

 

If you don’t have a smart phone or device to download an app, no problem!  You can print off a paper data sheet here:  https://oceanconservancy.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/OC-DataCards_volunteerFINAL_ENG.pdf
