Welcome to the EF Miami Beach cleanup as part of International Coastal Cleanup. We hope to see you at 4PM in the school's private pool area behind the main building on 2469 Collins Avenue - Miami Beach. Sponsored by Fastcare clinic, Citibike, Ora and Skybanditz
Looking forward to a great day!
Ocean trash is a serious pollution problem that affects the health of people, wildlife and local economies. Join the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean and waterways by participating in International Coastal Cleanup.
What you will want to bring:
- Wear appropriate footwear for being on the beach
- Sunscreen, sunglasses, bug spray/insect repellent, and hat are highly recommended
- Bring gloves (we suggest reusable working, gardening or dish gloves that you can pick up at the grocery store / hardware store)
- Bring Water in a reusable container. Let’s reduce our plastic waste and refuse single-use disposable plastic water bottles, when possible! A water cooler for cold water refills will be avaialble
*International Coastal Cleanup will provide garbage bags, data collection cards, and a giveaway goodie bag from VolunteerCleanup.org
What you get to be a part of:
- In 2015, more than 18 million pounds of trash was collected by nearly 800,000 volunteers during the International Coastal Cleanup.
- Here in Miami Dade, we collected 17,500 pounds of marine debris from 31 miles of coastline.
- By volunteering at ICC, you will be actively participating in a global citizen science project, not only by removing marine debris, but by cataloguing and tallying what you find using the Ocean Conservancy’s data collection cards or Clean Swell App. The resulting item-by-item, location-by-location Ocean Trash Index that Ocean Conservancy compiles each year provides the only global snapshot of the marine debris littering coasts and waterways around the world. We need your help to keep this momentum going.!
- Community service hours certificate can be provided
Prior to Cleanup Day:
- Everyone that participates should register online--even if you are coming together. We must have your name on the RSVP list as an individual (or your parent) in order for you to get the giveaway goodie bag.
- Volunteers must check in and sign waivers before any materials (bags, cards, or gift bags can be distributed
- If you are under 18 and coming without a parent or guardian, you must have a parent/guardian sign the waiver below in advance.https://d3n8a8pro7vhmx.cloudfront.net/cleanup/pages/310/attachments/original/1469817777/MDCC_Cleanup_Release_Waiver.pdf?1469817777
