The Ocean Conservancy‚Äôs International Coastal Cleanup is the world‚Äôs largest volunteer event of its kind. Last year, 378,000 volunteers from 76 countries and 45 states cleared six million pounds of trash from oceans and waterways and recorded every piece of trash collected. (Someone has way too much time on their hands!)
Sign up now to join this year’s cleanup effort on Sept. 20, 2008, and a local coordinator will be in touch with you soon. (I promise, you will not have to count every piece of trash you pick up – I am pretty sure they weigh it after the fact!) Visit www.oceanconservancy.org to sign up or for more information.
