The Marine Resources Council in collaboration with Keep Brevard Beautiful, the Ocean Conservancy, Old School Pizza, & Lucky's Market would like to invite you to join the International Coastal Cleanup! Every year this event garners hundreds of thousands of volunteers to comb shorelines, lakes, rivers and beaches around the world for trash. Last year 504,583 volunteers collected over 18,399,900 pounds of trash.

No matter where you live—whether on the coast or thousands of miles away—all waterways lead to the ocean. If we take action and work together, we can improve the ocean’s health and make trash free seas a reality.

Special Thanks to event sponsors Lucky's Market and Old School Pizza, who will be providing food and beverage service for our participating volunteers.

Supplies you will need:
• Work gloves (bring a pair of gloves with you)
• Dress appropriately (the shoreline is covered with boulders, rocks, potentially dangerous rigid & sharp objects)
• Water cooler with enough water to keep you hydrated, it will be especially warm (bring your own cooler)
• Food (bring your own food)
• Sun Screen
• Trash bags (or bring reusable containers or buckets)
• Pens or Pencils (for data collection)
• Optional: If you have a fish or a luggage scale (a scale with a hook) at home, you can use it to weigh the trash you collect

Keep These Safety Tips in Mind
Review what to do in case of a health emergency (heat exhaustion or heatstroke, broken bone, etc.)

When visiting the site, look for natural and man-made safety hazards, such as rocky areas, highly variable tides, poisonous plants, high-speed roads, power lines, etc. If necessary, dress accordingly, such as wearing long pants or closed-toed shoes.

Plan ahead for handling sharp items, including syringes or pieces of broken glass. We recommend disposing of these items in a container with a tight screw lid, such as an empty liquid laundry detergent bottle that you have clearly labeled.

Donate Now To Help Save The Indian River Lagoon!

Feeling more ambitious? Recruit friends and family to join you in this cleanup. Explain to them that no matter where you live—whether on the coast or thousands of miles away—all waterways lead to the ocean. If we take action and work together, we can improve the ocean’s health and make trash free seas a reality!
