In 2014, I Love A Clean San Diego coordinated a record-breaking 106 countywide locations, including local beaches, bays, canyons, creeks, and parks. To also tackle litter already in the ocean, ILACSD coordinated two boater cleanup sites, and assisted with an underwater cleanup of SD Bay. Countywide, 7,622 volunteers removed 208,012 LBS of litter and debris, all in just 3 hours! ILACSD partnered with Proyecto Fronteriza for a Coastal Cleanup Day event in Tijuana, where an additional 1600 volunteers removed over 11,000 pounds from our shared watershed, resulting in 9,222 volunteers joining forces for a cross border cleanup, where 219,035 LBS of debris was cleaned up!
Coastal Cleanup Day 2018 involves over 100 cleanup sites in San Diego County. The event's reach doesn't stop here. Coastal Cleanup Day is celebrated across California as well as all 50 states, and held in over 150 countries worldwide.
