Floatopia Engagement Team (South Beach)

Saturday, September 05, 2015 at 03:00 PM · 10 rsvps
Ocean and 1st (on the sand) in Miami Beach, FL

We need help on this one - Floatopia will be bringing thousands of visitors from all around South Florida to bask in the sun and float in the water. Unfortunately many leave lots of litter on the sand and in the water. We are going to try and change that through engagement, providing garbage bags, and the famous 'Trash Floats'. We are here to RAISE AWARENESS - NOT CLEAN UP AFTER THEM.!.

Come assist whenever you can.  We will be there starting around 2pm until sunset.

Tasks :

     - Working the tents (education, free water)
     - Engaging people when they get to the beach
     - Positive Engagement with people on the Softpack Sand
     - Floating Trash Cans (Kayak and SUP)
     - Patrolling the waterline to ensure no trash gets in the water
     - Reporting major violations to Code Enforcement

TRANSPORT AND PARKING - There will be 6-8,000 people, so don't even try to drive. Use public transport, get a ride, or Lyft / Uber (if you aren't a Lyft user already, use code KIRA892722).


Floatopia Aftermath Clean Up

Saturday, September 05, 2015 at 07:00 PM · 11 rsvps
South of Fifth Miami Beach in Miami Beach, FL

Floatopia Miami is a fun event that takes place a few times a year since we have the luxury of sunny hot weather year round. However, during this celebration of bringing the community together to enjoy the beach, the beach is really being abused and not taken care of. Lots of plastic, glass and floats are left behind. So I would like to bring the conscious community together to come in after and save the day! :-)

While there may have been efforts to educate and assist the attendees with trash clean up, we need a bigger army to make this happen.

Since this is a free community event there isn't much control or regulations implemented.. So as citizens of Miami I would like to join forces with all who would like to keep our beach and water ways clean and our marine life safe.

Join me and other Miamians for a sunset beach clean up.

We will need plenty of X-large trash bags along with the air pump to pull the air out of each float. You are more than welcome to take home as many floats as you like as I know they can be expensive.

Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns by commenting below.

Fruit will be served after as a token of my appreciation for joining me.

Thank you and see you there! :-)

P.S. Please feel free to share this event with everyone you know.


Hollywood Beach Sweeps (Monthly)

Saturday, September 12, 2015 at 07:00 AM · 2 rsvps
Charnow Park in Hollywood, FL

Hollywood Beach Sweeps are conducted on the second Saturday of the every month from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.  Volunteers meet at Charnow Park, which is located at Garfield Street and A1A, and collect litter and cigarette butts from the beach.  Please complete the registration form and bring it with you.

Always check http://www.hollywoodfl.org/index.aspx?nid=746 for the current schedule. Minimum age to volunteer is eight, and an adult must accompany minors. Volunteers must wear proper cleanup attire.  T-shirt and shorts are acceptable. All volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes -- No flip-flops. Volunteers wearing flip-flops will not be allowed to participate. It is recommended that volunteers wear a hat and sunscreen and bring their own water. It is also a good idea to bring a snack. 

Safety and Equipment:
Keep Hollywood Beautiful will provide trash bags and gloves. Staff will conduct a short safety meeting and provide cleanup instructions prior to the cleanup on the day of the event. 

Parking:
Volunteers should park and meet at Charnow Park, 300 Connecticut Street. Carpooling is highly recommended. Not only is it good for the environment, but parking on the beach is limited. We cannot guarantee free parking for all volunteers. Parking passes will be issued at the Registration Table which you must place on your car dashboard.

Marine Debris:
Marine debris is often the result of deliberate or accidental actions by people on land or at sea. For example, uncovered trash bins, litter, debris left in streets and on beaches, and items thrown overboard can all become marine debris. Items can travel far before landing on shorelines or settling in the ocean. Marine debris can come from anywhere-it can be carried by rivers, streams, and other waterways into the ocean.
