Head to the shore on September 21 to participate in the International Coastal Cleanup, where volunteers clean and document beach debris in the world’s largest volunteer effort to help protect our ocean, lakes and rivers. During the 2012 cleanup, volunteers including Axel Perez and Perry Maltese, shown here cleaning the beach under the Mt. Hope Bridge, found enough bottles, that if stacked end to end, would equal 1000 Empire State buildings. There are still locations that need beach captains and volunteers. Please contact Jon Scoones at 401/949-5454 x3044 or [email protected] to find a beach cleanup near you, or visit www.signuptocleanup.org.
