At the 2012 California Coastal Cleanup Day event in San Diego County, 7,239 volunteers came out to help clean up local coastal and inland communities. These dedicated volunteers removed 127,703.5 pounds of trash and recyclables from 211 miles of shoreline. Plus, over 2,000 of our friends across the border collected 40,000 pounds in Tijuana, Tecate, Rosarito and Ensenada. Together we were nearly 10,000 volunteers in this interconnected region!
California Coastal Cleanup Day is organized locally by I Love A Clean San Diego and statewide by the California Coastal Commission and it takes place throughout California in 48 counties. California Coastal Cleanup Day is also a part of International Coastal Cleanup, which engages volunteers from close to 100 countries. This year, 560,000 participants removed 10 million pounds of debris from across the world.
