We had a great event.  640,000 pounds of trash was collected in CA alone.
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.

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 CA alone, 82,500 volunteers removed more than 1.2 million pounds of trash and recyclables from our beaches, lakes, and waterways.

See you soon,

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 onFacebook 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!
