In 2016 we hosted, collaborated on, and organized 24 beach clean up events in Pacific Rim! These clean ups attracted over 250 volunteers, and collected approximately 5000kg of debris from our beaches! Over 70% of the debris we collect is marine debris (debris that’s washed in from the ocean) and over 70% of that is a form of plastic. With your help and stoke to protect what we love, we can keep our coastlines free from trash, and have fun on the beach with other volunteers!

We are always looking for more volunteers at our beach clean ups. Whether you want to lead your own beach clean, help organize an existing one, or simply come along and collect trash with everyone else, get in touch with our Volunteer Coordinator, we would love to have you help out.
If you are thinking of hosting an event on the beach here on the Pacific Rim, and would like Surfrider to attend, you can get in touch with Chapter Manager. We would love to help you make your event plastic waste free!
You can download the official LYBC annual planner for your fridge! And if you love your beach clean, share it! Be sure to hashtag your photographs #LYBC!
