The Beach Clean ups are for everyone and is an amazing opportunity to raise awareness and learn how to appreciate this beautiful city we live in.

  • Beach cleanups run on the first Saturday of every month starting at 10am and last 90 minutes
  • Bags and gloves provided
  • Look out for the blue or green banners on the beach.

If you need some more motivation to join us this week lets look at some facts and figures:

  • Plastics do not biodegrade in our lifetime, but instead break down into small particles that persist in the ocean, adsorb to toxins, and enter the food chain through fish, sea birds and other marine life.[7]
  • Plastic is the most common type of marine litter worldwide.[10] [11]
  • Up to 80% of marine litter is plastic.[12]
  • An estimated 5-13 million tons of plastic enter our oceans each year from land-based sources.[13]
  • Several studies on plastic microfibers and nanoplastics have indicated that these particles are able to be ingested by marine animals and bioaccumulate up the food chain, carrying with them adhered chemicals and toxins, posing health impacts to both wildlife and human consumers of seafood.[31] [32] [33]
