BEACHLY LIFESTYLE: We're celebrating Coastal Cleanup Month!
Hey beach lovers, I can't believe it's already September... that happened fast! And this month, we're so excited to support our friends at Heal the Bay in celebrating Coastal Cleanup Month. For the entire month of September, Heal the Bay will be hosting decentralized cleanups and weekly programming to keep the coastlines and waters clean. Keep on reading to learn more on how you can get involved!
Who can join?
ANYONE! Invite your friends and family to be a part of cleaning up local parks, beaches, and more this month. Even if you don't live near a coastline, your efforts still make a huge difference. Don't forget to physically distance, wear gloves, and bring your masks to stay safe :)
What can I do to help?
A few things you can do to help are... CLEANUP - LEARN - DONATE. Read more on each way you can help down below.
If you gather a few friends to help cleanup, make sure to register here to take part in the world's biggest volunteer event to protect the ocean - no matter where you live! Coastal Cleanup Day is this Saturday, September 5. It's free to register and helps Heal the Bay to keep track of how much trash is being cleaned across the country!
Every week this month, Heal the Bay will share a series of events to help educate us on the different environmental issues we face today. Make sure to follow Heal the Bay on Instagram for live chats and informational stories! Here's their calendar for this month's topics.
