Ocean and beach trash is a serious pollution problem. It affects the health of people, wildlife and ecosystems. We are aware and want to be active participants in cleaning up the world around us.
On April 22, 2019, we held our first beach clean up in York, Maine.
We had groups of people collecting rubbish in and around:
– Long Sands/ Boathouse
– Short Sands
– Harbor beach
– Cape Neddick
We were joined by:
– Community members
– Local businesses
– Coastal Ridge Elementary School
A special thank you to Blue Ocean Society for donating reusable grain bags and Surfrider for providing buckets for trash.
Our team will continue to meet down by the ocean on April 22 but we encourage everyone to take part in cleaning the areas near their home and work, a few times a year.
