Q: Are you required to bring your own supplies?

A: No, we can provide gloves and bags for you, however, volunteers are encouraged to reduce the environmental footprint of cleanup events. Please join our efforts by participating in the "Bring Your Own" Philosophy by bringing your own grocery/retail plastic bags (for reuse), bucket and/or reusable water bottle to make this event ZERO WASTE.

Buy a COASTAL PLAYGROUND TOTE BAG, and $5 goes toward beach cleanup supplies!
