Host Your Own Zero Waste Cleanup!

Reduce waste by hosting your own zero waste Adopt-A-Beach cleanup!  Plastics including bags, gloves, and single use water bottles never biodegrade and threaten the environment and wildlife.  I Love A Clean San Diego can lend your group reusable gloves, buckets, and a refillable water cooler for your volunteers that bring their own reusable water bottle.  Buckets and trash grabbers require a $5 per item deposit, and coolers require a $15 deposit, both in cash or check that we hold and return to you when you return the supplies.  This email address is being protected from spambots.

The card asks for each volunteer to tally up each item they pick up to obtain a grand total of the types of trash removed from your adopted site.
