Beach Cleanups with KPB
Organized by the Ocean Conservancy, International Coastal Cleanup is the largest annual global cleanup effort to remove litter from our beloved beaches. Keep Pensacola Beautiful does our part by hosting a cleanup each year in September.
World Ocean’s Day is an annual movement that encourages communities around the world to protect the ocean’s that connect us by cleaning their coastlines. Keep Pensacola Beautiful proudly participates in this event, taking place in June.
Keep Pensacola Beautiful holds a cleanup on Memorial Day weekend every year in celebration of the first week of summer. We strive to set the standard of a clean beach for our visitors and residents in the busy months ahead.
Litter left on the beach can have many negative consequences. It breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces over long periods of time, causing harm to marine and shoreline wildlife as well as human health. Litter can also leave a undesirable impression to the visitors that drive our local economy.
After working to reduce our waste production, the next step is to pick up after our fellow humans. Walking the beach for a few hours to remove litter is an easy action, but it has a huge impact! Let’s work together to give our coastline has a fighting chance.
