Corporate Beach Cleanups

Orange County Coastkeeper offers your group the opportunity to partner with us to run an engaging hands-on beach cleanup. Involvement in our beach cleanup program is a great way to enhance the image of your company as a positive contributor to the community and local environment. Sponsoring a beach cleanup involves your employees in an important hands-on environmental program, teaching people about pollution while they remove debris from the beaches.

Why are beach cleanups important?

Litter on beaches is more than just an eyesore – it damages our environment, threatens our public health, and undermines our quality of life. The most common items found on local beaches are cigarette butts and single-use plastics. If these types of debris are not removed from the beach, they end up in our water. Marine debris is one of the biggest problems facing our ocean, posing a serious threat to wildlife through ingestion or entanglement. Coastkeeper informs businesses and communities about how they can help stop pollution before it starts by taking greater care in their everyday activities and choices to minimize marine debris.
