Pick One of These New Jersey Beach Cleanups AND Make a Difference

Posted on: September 25th, 2020 by

Twice a year, Clean Ocean Action asks for your help with New Jersey Beach Cleanups!

There’s no fun in walking along the beach as you try to avoid plastic bags, food garbage and all those other items that are left behind or washed up. You can help any time you’re at the beach, or join Clean Ocean Action at any of the following New Jersey beach cleanups set for Saturday, April 17, 2021, 9:00 am – 12:30 pm (unless noted below).

There are some Covid-19 guidelines to be aware of, which are posted on the website. Most of the groups will supply the gloves and garbage bags needed for the sweeps all you supply are the hands. For the little ones, I suggest grabbing an old pair of winter gloves or mittens and let them wear those while doing the sweep. The latex gloves most likely won’t come in toddler size. Don’t forget your rain boots!

A great excuse for an off season beach day and a great way to teach your kids how to make a difference! Can’t make the October date? Watch this space for a date for the Spring 2021 COA Beach Sweep.

    My company is interested in volunteering for a beach clean up possibly in Long Branch or that area on June 16, 2017. I could have 30 – 40 volunteers for the morning of June 16, 2017 maybe a few more. Any ideas who I could contact to make something like this happen
