International Coastal Cleanup Miami-Dade, Saturday, Sept 21st 2019
Miami Waterkeeper invites you to join us for the Ocean Conservancy’s 34th annual International Coastal Cleanup taking place in over 100 countries worldwide. Here in Miami-Dade there will be 40+ simultaneous cleanups all over the county that will be attended by thousands of volunteers. Will you be one of them?
With 17 billion pounds of plastic entering our ocean each year, marine debris is a serious problem, threatening marine life from corals polyps to sharks, the health of people, and local economies. The good news is that the tides are changing and we are starting see change happening in the right direction! Each day, major companies make announcements about how they are reducing plastic waste, governments around the world are implementing sensible legislation, and entrepreneurs are developing innovative solutions and products. We are being heard. This is the power of the grassroots. It’s critical that we keep up the momentum, and participating in ICC is a great way to highlight the problem while demonstrating our collective commitment to reducing marine debris, along with volunteers from around the globe!
Miami-Dade’s local participation in this world-wide event is powered by VolunteerCleanup.org, Miami Waterkeeper, and many other partner organizations and Site Captains who lead the individual cleanups in the program, and is made possible by the generous support of sponsor Covanta, with additional support from Capital One Café, Wells Fargo, and Miami Beach Suncare.
