Beach Cleanups

Surfrider Maui joins with other community groups, Ohana,and visitors in doing monthly beach cleanups.  Maui Coffee Roasters has donated re-usable burlap sacks to collect the garbage in, so no new plastic bags are used. It is important to remove the garbage, especially the plastics, as they are poisonous to sea life when ingested, often entangle the animals, and remain in the ocean forever.

If you are interested in participating in a Beach Clean-up, want to report a net on the beach, or would like to find out more, contact Volunteer Coordinator Andrew O’Riordan at 808-895-6339 or volunteercoordinator@maui.surfrider.org.
