From Butts to Vacuum Cleaners: March Recap

The March 16th cleanup at Esplanade Beach was a resounding success, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our 46 volunteers, including students from Mills High School. Together, we made a significant impact on the cleanliness of our coastline, with almost 2,000 cigarette butts removed from the environment. Additionally, our volunteers unearthed some intriguing items, including a shopping cart and even a vacuum cleaner — a diverse range of debris can accumulate on our shores. Nearly 15 pounds of recycling and 70 pounds of trash were also collected. The commitment of our volunteers is truly commendable and we thank all who participated and eagerly at this cleanup.

We hope to see everyone again at our Earth Day cleanup on April 20th, as we continue our mission to protect and beautify our local coastal ecosystem!
