Pollution Prevention is Patriotic!

post

The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and here at Save Our Shores we know what that means … tons of pollution on our local beaches! But with the help of volunteers, we can prevent that pollution from entering the Monterey Bay and harming marine life.

Celebrate responsibly this Fourth of July!

The first opportunity to help comes on July 4. We need volunteers to hand out bags, spread the Pollution Prevention is Patriotic message, and remind beachgoers to take care of their trash and recyclables. Outreach efforts will take place from 12-4 p.m. at the following beaches:

4 Mile Beach
Cowell and Main Beach
Seabright State Beach
Twin Lakes State Beach
Seacliff/Rio Del Mar beaches
Del Monte Beach
Carmel City Beach

Girl Scouts at Seacliff July 5 2013

Girl Scouts helped us clean Seacliff State Beach on July 5, 2013

We need all the help we can get to restore the beauty of our local beaches, especially after a three-day holiday weekend like this Independence Day, so please tell your friends, your mailman, your barista, your dentist, and everyone else you know who cares about the health of the ocean to volunteer with SOS!

Remember: Beaches need love too! Celebrate responsibly this Fourth of July and keep our beaches clean.
