International Coastal Cleanup still underway

While the Ocean Conservancy promoted September 17 as the official day of action for the International Coastal Cleanup, Clean Virginia Waterways is collecting data for the project through October 31. Volunteers who participate also complete data cards, collecting valuable information about the amounts, types, and sources of debris found along the Commonwealth's waterways. CVW uses the data to educate the public on issues of freshwater and marine pollution.

You can sign up to be a Site Captain and organize an ICC cleanup in your community by clicking here.

Saturday, October 1, was Clif Bar's Day of Action, and the kick off to Surfrider Foundation's RAPtoberfest campaign. You can still participate, and win a prize for your activism. Hurry out and pick up one square foot of plastic litter. Arrange it on one of these One Foot at a Time templates, take a picture, and send it to Surfrider before October 14 for a chance to win a great prize from Rusty!
