Coastal Cleanup Day is coming up September 20th! We take pride in the beauty of our Californian coastline, and events like this help keep our beaches and waterways looking nice and healthy. Last year alone, 58,000 volunteers removed 750,000 pounds of trash from beaches and waterways around California.
Eco will be organizing a Santa Monica Pier clean up dive with Heal the Bay. In past years many odd items have been recovered, from briefcases full of crackers to religious statues. It’s a good time with your dive buddies and an opportunity to help in the preservation of the ocean that we enjoy every day in Los Angeles. Divers are an important part of the clean up effort because a great deal of the pollution that is found in the Santa Monica and San Pedro bays come from water runoff from the rest of the city, much of it inaccessible to volunteers on foot. You never know what might turn up, so join us for an eco adventure!
