Making small waves with beach clean up volunteers
Do It For The Beaches
Leave you surf board at home due to small waves in the Summer. Join us at Oregon Ocean Day and Beach Clean Up Volunteers, let's clean up the beaches!
This Ocean Blue Project focuses on cleaning the ocean and creating awareness to reduce the use of plastic. We are collecting large and small micro fragments on every visit to the Oregon Coast, year round. This project is a community effort and all Oregonians are asked to participate. If we all do a little, we can achieve a lot.
The microplastic fragments are easy to pick up so it's fun for everyone. It doesn't cost a anything to join this monumental movement, simply pick up some plastic fragments next time you go to the beach, that's it. Sharing on social media is also another way to create awareness.
WALK ON THE BEACH:
Beach Clean Up Volunteers can go for walk with us and enjoy the beach. As you walk, look towards the high tide mark in the sand and you'll see us there picking up plastic fragments. Oregonians and visitors alike can make a difference in just a few minutes by picking up the plastic fragments before they are swallowed by marine life and enter the food chain, disrupting fragile ecosystems.
We are requesting donations to open a recycling facility for drying and shipping plastic fragments collected on beaches. Plastic collected will be up cycled into reusable products.
Ocean Blue Project is a registered Oregon 501(c)(3) non-profit so all donations are tax deductible. Please donate if you can. Thank you for your continued support and dedication for a cleaner ocean, rivers, and beaches.
