On September 19th, volunteers all over the world are uniting for a cleaner planet. This year cleanups look a little different, but there are still ways to get involved!

1) Join Carteret Big Sweep for the International Coastal Cleanup. Small groups and solo cleaners can borrow supplies and get a location placement. Fill out the form here.

2) Grab your scuba gear and join the Aquanauts in Dive Against Debris.
Contact Janelle Flemming: janelle.fleming@merrowfoundation.org

3) Clean wherever you are! Do a solo clean or recruit members of your household. Find a beach, park, forest, or just pick up around your neighborhood. You can fill out a Cleanup Bingo card and return to Coastal Carolina Riverwatch for a prize!

Make your cleanups go further. Download the Marine Debris Tracker app or Clean Swell app to record your finds and automatically submit data to experts working on pollution problems.

Please be sure to follow all social distancing guidelines, wear a mask, gloves, and sanitize as needed. Dress appropriately. Bring sunscreen, bug spray, and a reusable water bottle.

Get Involved

Executive Director, Lisa Rider, had the opportunity to accompany Plastic Ocean Project on an offshore excursion to film their upcoming documentary, “If The Ocean Could Talk”. The team cleaned trash out of sargassum lines and Lisa interviewed on her expertise in marine debris and scuba diving. We are so grateful to have such amazing partners in the fight for our oceans!

Your Crystal Coast Waterkeeper, Larry Baldwin, and Water Quality Tech, Nicole Triplett, continue to collect samples to safeguard our waterways. Being in the field allows us to look for impairments to waterways. The more we know about our water quality, the more we are able to work towards solutions.
