Want to be a part of the largest volunteer day on the Planet ?

September 12th is the 25th Annual California Coastal Cleanup Day. Heal the Bay is cleaning up 80 sites, from the sand to the strand.¬† At a recent Captains training meeting, Julia & I learned that “the ocean starts at your front yard”…whether you live on the strand downtown or on the sand in Santa Monica…it’s all connected…a living eco-system. Everything that is thrown on the street…has the potential to be washed into a storm drain and end up in our beautiful rivers and oceans. The most common ‘trashy’ item found is the cigarette but there have been some unusual ‘treasures’…a chandelier, a briefcase filled with graham crackers, and a bridal gown…fit for a mermaid I would assume !

Heal the Bay has been been organizing thisPicture 37 event for 20 years. Every state with a coastline participates… plus, over 60 nations worldwide…making it the largest cleanup day on the planet with thousands of the ‘coolest’ people on the planet…picking up thousands of tons of trash & recycle-ables…helping you the children enjoy a cleaner beach, working towards freeing the marine life from harmful and confusing items they often mistake for food. So think about what you can do and learn more by visiting¬† Buy a tee shirt or a beautiful charm while you are at it !

Bob Stein, our partner & friend wrote a song entitled “The earth is our neighborhood”. It’s true and it’s up to each of you to do something small whenever you can to make it a prettier, safer, cleaner place for all.
