· Bring Your Own – Use reusable supplies! You can help reduce the amount of plastic trash we create at the cleanup by bringing your own reusable bucket and garden gloves from home (optional).
· Zero Waste – Make your Coastal Cleanup Day zero waste. We are working hard to reduce the amount of trash created on Coastal Cleanup Day. Join us at a Zero Waste Site and take the challenge!
· CODE RED SITES – Willing to get dirty? You can help make a big difference at CODE RED SITES. These are cleanup locations that really need tons of people, strong muscles and hard working volunteers to make a visible impact at that site due to the amounts of trash present.
