Join us for a beach cleanup the first Saturday of every month at Belmont Pier in Long Beach, CA. Bring a reusable bag or a bucket, gloves, trash picker, sunscreen, water, etc.
What purpose do beach cleanups serve?
????Surfrider Foundation supports volunteers to organize Beach cleanups completely autonomously, with a range of tools and an educational approach.
????Joining one of Surfrider’s beach cleanups, participants become aware of the impact of waste-related pollution, while actively reducing marine litter.
????When volunteers inform Surfrider about the waste picked up during their cleanup, they are contributing to pollution research and helping to influence legislation.
Reasons to participate in a beach cleanup:
????A beach cleanup is a practical action to protect the environment while enjoying some time with your family, friends or new acquaintances.
????Taking part in a beach cleanup helps to make people aware of marine litter issues, using the educational tools provided by Surfrider.
????Beach cleanups allow Surfrider to influence laws and reduce waste at source, through volunteer participation and information gathered on waste.
