Celebrating World Oceans Day 2019 with
Love Beauty and Planet & Love Home and Planet

World Oceans Day is a global celebration held annually on June 8th, with hundreds of events around the world celebrating our ocean. This World Oceans Day, we are proud to co-host 27 beach cleanups with Love Beauty and Planet & Love Home and Planet across the U.S. to remove thousands of pounds of trash and plastic from our coastline and engage thousands of volunteers, with hopes of inspiring positive personal habit changes that support a healthy ocean.

Volunteers at all cleanups will receive tokens of thanks from Love Beauty and Planet & Love Home and Planet, including the opportunity to win free beauty, home and personal care products courtesy of Love Beauty and Planet & Love Home and Planet through these #smallactsoflove for our planet. 

As with all Surfrider beach cleanups, this is a free event and is open to the public.

World Oceans Day Beach Cleanup

June 11, 2019 — Over two dozen volunteers participated in the Center for Coastal Studies’ World Oceans Day beach cleanup at Beach Point in Truro on June 8th. 4,996 pieces of trash were removed in less than 1.5 hours.

In a collaborative effort, the Town of Truro conducted cleanups at other Truro beaches and cleared 250 pounds of additional trash with their group of 45 volunteers.

The CCS effort involved two separate components – the cleanup, and the inventory. Without having to carry a clipboard or tally as they go, volunteers dispersed from Noons Landing, the Days Cottages, and Beach Point Landing, collecting trash for 1-2 hours and returning their bags to Beach Point Landing. Because identifying and tallying the debris from cleanups is an important and integral part of tackling marine plastic pollution, a second group of volunteers then spent 3 hours sorting and counting all the collected debris, allowing us to get a very clear idea of the primary culprits.

Perhaps not surprisingly, most of the top-ten items were what is called “consumer debris” – packaging materials, food-related items, toys, balloons, and polystyrene foam. Rope and buoy material from the lobster fishery were the only non-consumer debris in the top-ten list (by count).

The Top Ten List from the CCS World Oceans Day 2019 cleanup:
10: Buoys/floats/pieces–118
9: Balloons/balloon strings–226
8: Rope–246
7: Styrofoam cups/pieces–305
6: Caps/lids–325
5: Food Wrappers–350
4: Construction Material (mostly insulation foam)–350
3: Rigid Non-descript plastic–492
2: Plastic Wrapping–703
1: Styrofoam Packaging–935

In amongst the trash were a few “treasures”: antique glass bottle, plastic toy soldier, plastic toy Indian chief, plastic toy shovels, plastic duck decoy head, and a plastic wastewater treatment disk, called a “Hooksett disk” since 2011 when millions of them were accidentally released from a plant in Hooksett NH, showing up on beaches ever since.

The Center for Coastal Studies would like to thank Julie Knapp at Twisted Pizza for supporting the CCS cleanup, and congratulate the Town of Truro for their same-day success. To sign up for future beach cleanups in Provincetown, contact Jesse Mechling or Laura Ludwig at 508-487-3622.

World Oceans Day Beach Cleanup
Long Beach, California
World Oceans Day Beach Cleanup

The Los Angeles and the San Gabriel rivers empty trash from surrounding areas into the waters
of Long Beach. Tons of pounds of trash collect inside the breakwater and drift back up on to the beach. In addition, the high number of visitors each weekend, makes our cleanup site Long Beach's most affected shoreline. We need your help to cleanup what doesn't belong in this environment: Trash!

• After a storm, the city uses bulldozers to pick up the trash and hauls it away, but small pieces are left
behind which are only collectable by hand.
• Trash on the beach can be harmful to the health and safety of beach users and marine wildlife.
• Plastics take hundreds of years to breakdown and can trap and kill animals.
