2010 New Hampshire Coastal Cleanup
This is a perfect time to join a cleanup, as the Mother of All Beach Cleanups - the International Coastal Cleanup - is coming up on Saturday, September 17, 2011. Last year, over 600,000 volunteers participated worldwide - and picked up 8 million pounds of trash!
Here in New Hampshire, over 1,300 volunteers picked up over 6,000 pounds of trash along 19 miles of coastline. Can you guess what the #1 item was, and how many we found? Leave your guess in the comments!
Whether you're in New Hampshire or Nigeria, on the ocean or inland, there's likely a cleanup somewhere near you. Click here to check out the Ocean Conservancy's site, which allows you to search for and sign up for a cleanup.
If you're in New Hampshire, I look forward to seeing you on the 17th!
