Starting June 1st, we have announced new guidelines for individuals to conduct solo beach clean ups as long as local governing bodies allow for public beach access. A “solo cleanup” is defined as an individual cleanup by one person or household unit, not necessarily organized by the chapter, but promoted as an activity for the public. 

If you go out for your own beach cleanup, please help us log what is showing up on our beaches by using the Ocean Conservancy’s Clean Swell App. With Clean Swell, simply “Start Collecting” trash wherever you are around the world and the data you collect will instantaneously upload to Ocean Conservancy’s global ocean trash database. These data deliver a global snapshot of ocean trash, providing researchers and policy-makers insight to inform solutions

*** Remember to log the data under the Group Name: Surfrider Ventura ***
