Pollution Prevention is Patriotic: What We Do

Traditions of picnics and fireworks bring thousands of people to the beaches of Monterey Bay to celebrate the 4th of July. Piles of garbage and trashed beaches are the unfortunate result.

SOS tackles the aftermath of pollution and debris through education, outreach, and awareness. Be it on our beaches or through local media outlets - Save Our Shores is there. We remind visitors to 'Pack your Trash', hand out thousands of trash and recycling bags on our beaches, and we rise early to conduct the July 5thStar Spangled Beach Cleanup, the second largest beach cleanup of the year on the Central Coast.

Our volunteers create cleaner, safer, more beautiful beaches - and we want YOU to join us!


Volunteer with SOS on July 4th 2013:

Volunteers will hit the beaches from 12 - 4pm to remind beach-goers to properly dispose of and recycle their trash with our Pollution Prevention is Patriotic campaign!
