VolunteerCleanup.Org is raising awareness about Marine Debris through education, activism, and action.
Clean Rivers Month 2016 (CRM), the entire month of April, is a community effort to clean up around the Blackwater & Nottoway Rivers. This 15th annual clean up is accomplished by teams and individuals going out on our rivers, streams and ditches, parking lots, even your yard or wherever, and picking up litter, trash and other junk. To date we have removed over 89,000 pounds of trash from our little piece of the world. CRM is a great opportunity for folks to contribute to the health of the community we live in. As always I will have litter getters and bags for those who need them. Teams or individuals can pick their own locations or I can find you one. Look for places where roads cross a stream, places where the trash could be carried to the rivers. If you pick your own location it is very important that you let me know where that is so I will not send another team there. My advice is to go ahead and start looking around at river and swamp bridge crossings or ditches etc. in your area as a place for you or your team to clean up. Teams can pick a day or days during the entire month of April. Teams need to keep count of bag and participant totals, totals of tires etc. and send that information to me after the clean-up. Make note of your “most unusual item found” and be sure to take pictures to send to me. More details will follow when you sign up. Email me at email@example.com or call me at 562-5173 to get signed up. This is a great community event to get involved in. Please mark the month of April on your organization’s calendar.
We will be meeting right after the toll at the park. this a great opportunity to clean up our beautiful city and if needed gain 4 hours of community service!! In addition will we be having free pizza after the clean up. Come and join us it's for a good cause!!

Let keep North Beach Clean after the Memorial Day visitors have left. With North Beach new popularity, we are seeing more and more visitors to our small town, more visitors = more trash. Event attendees will receive complimentary drinks and protein bars provided by JaxCoco water and SmartLife protein bars.
In the beginning of 2016, I made a promise to myself to visit the beach at least once a week to cleanse my body and my mind. During each of my visits, my heart breaks when I look around and see TRASH. Every time that I go, I take a walk down the shore and pick up as much trash as I can. This has become a magical part of my week and I would love to share this wonderful feeling with the entire world. Our Ocean is so magical and has so much power over our lives. It's so important return the favor by cleaning up and giving it LOVE! Most of us grew up in Florida so we KNOW how precious these beaches are. We all have such a deep connection to the Ocean and it's important to set an example for all of our visitors.
✨Calling all OCEAN LOVERS to come together for a magical sunrise meditation to welcome the new day with gratitude & love. Then, I will guide you through a peaceful slow vinyasa flow; ending with a magical Gong & Crystal Bowl Sound Healing meditation.✨
Please arrive 15 minutes before the SUNRISE. I will announce the exact time the night before.
I encourage you to bring your own buckets, gloves, and/or reusable bags to decrease the amount of waste produced by the clean-up.
Our first meet up will be at the Hollywood North Beach Park, but we'll be traveling up and down the South Florida coast once a month! I will schedule the meet up after major holidays since that is when our beaches suffer the most. Bring any type of instrument that you own so that we can create magic together!
✨All Ages Welcomed✨
Please JOIN and SPREAD the LOVE!
