This is it – in just one week, our grassroots leaders will help execute the world's biggest trash cleanup – the International Coastal Cleanup. Last year, we had over 600,000 volunteers collect over 9 million pounds of trash on our beaches, in our neighborhoods, and at local open spaces and parks.We see trash on our streets and in our neighborhoods every day, and it's not just an eyesore. Much of this trash ends up in our waterways, beginning a long, slow march to the ocean where it impacts the health of our ocean, the food we eat, and the water we drink.
You can help do something about it. It's easy – go to the registration website, www.signuptocleanup.org, search for events in your area, and sign up for one. Then just grab some water, put on some sneakers, and join our hundreds of thousands of volunteers to help pick-up trash and protect our ocean and waterways.
