Recommended Supplies:

• Work gloves (bring a pair of gloves with you)

• Dress appropriately (the shoreline is covered with boulders, rocks, potentially dangerous rigid & sharp objects)

• Water to keep you hydrated, it will be especially warm (bring your own cooler)

• Food (bring your own food)

• Sun Screen

• Bring reusable containers or buckets for trash

• 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 heat stroke, a 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.

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!

Every year this event engages people to remove trash from shorelines, lakes, rivers, and beaches around the world, identifying the sources of debris and changing behaviors.

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.
