Working with the nice folks at Heal the Bay, the local yacht clubs and Port Royal Marina, we will again be organizing our local Cleanup Site – the marinas of King Harbor in Redondo Beach.

We do a little cleaning up and it is a great time to work side by side on a community event.

Coastal Cleanup Day is a global event, the largest Volunteer Day on the planet. It highlights the need to keep our coastal areas clean, safe and fun for all. Last year in California alone, nearly 63,000 volunteers removed over 871,580 pounds of trash and recyclable waste from our beaches, lakes, and waterways, covering more than 1,500 miles! An astounding 648,015 volunteers in 92 countries picked up more than 12.3 million pounds of trash in our 2013 International Coastal Cleanup.
Thank you for helpin’ out.

Thanks to all who participated last year!

Our 2013 event was a huge success. We got more than twice as much debris as last year. Thank you all for participating including the large group from Kinecta Credit Union. All of you rock!

A big thank you to:

  • All who volunteered! This event doesn’t happen without you
  • Port Royal Yacht Club and Marina for providing food for our volunteers before and after.
  • The City of Redondo and our contact Gary L. for lending the cleanup gear.
  • Heal the Bay for organizing our part of CA. You people are amazing.

“Dear Woody,Thank you for participating in Heal the Bay’s 23rd annual Coastal Cleanup Day! Despite scorching temperatures, Southlanders showed up in droves on Saturday to pick up nearly 20 tons of ocean-bound debris!

Your efforts spanned 56 miles of local beaches, inland waterways, regional parks and urban neighborhoods to remove 38,598 pounds of trash. Cigarette butts, plastic bottles and caps, snack-food packaging, plastic bags and Styrofoam fragments were among the most frequently found items.

Among the unusual found objects was an aspiring actor’s tattered headshot discovered by divers near the Santa Monica Pier. Only in L.A.!

Check out more photos from the 58 cleanup sites and stay connected with Heal the Bay on Facebook and Twitter. We’ve also added you to our monthly enewsletter to stay in touch.

If you enjoyed Coastal Cleanup Day, join us for our monthly beach cleanups every third Saturday from 10 a.m.- noon. Can’t make it to our next cleanup? Just $20 can help run a cleanup site in your neighborhood.

Thanks for your hard work!

Cara Young

Coastal Cleanup Day Coordinator”
