OBTC Sponsors CSI Clean-Up to Focus on Preventing Litter Reaching the Ocean
From our Friends at the OB Rag:
There is a concerted effort this weekend to do a New Year’s clean-up of the Ocean Beach community, Saturday, January 10th. And the focus this time – is not on the beach – but in the areas of OB where the litter leads to the ocean.
The OB Cleaner Streets Initiative (CSI-OB) is teaming up with CleanUps for ChangeSaturday in Ocean Beach for a community litter cleanup. They will focus on the streets, alleys, and sidewalks that lead to the ocean in addition to cleaning litter from our parks and beaches.
Volunteers are asked to meet at Pizza Port OB (1956 Bacon St., OB, SD, 92107) from 9am until Noon. They will be asked to focus on a specific segment of Ocean Beach.
As with all litter cleanups, participants are encouraged to bring gloves in addition to wearing shoes, pants and long sleeves. Bring a bucket if you can. There will be plenty of extra gloves and supplies for volunteers. Plan to stick around for pizza and volunteer appreciation specials at Pizza Port.
The ocean is turning into a plastic soup and much of the plastic at sea starts as litter on land. Litter can be intentional or by accident, but either way we need to find solutions to fight this urban blight that impacts our environment. In addition to participating in community cleanups, it is critical to find solutions to prevent litter.
