Ventura Cleanup

Ventura Cleanup

We have many requests for West Coast cleanups. Thanks to some of dedicated and passionate 4Ocean advocates, we are able to make these West Coast cleanups possible. 50+ volunteers showed up to Surfer's Point in Ventura County, CA for a 4Ocean cleanup hosted by one of our ambassadors. 

Ventura's Surfer's Point Beach is a very high traffic area in California. More traffic = more trash. It is an attraction for surfers from all over the state, it is dog friendly beach, and there are many homeless that will hang around the coastline. The shore is also lined with low tide pool areas where much trash gets trapped between the rocks during low tide. 

At the end of the morning, a total of 287.47 pounds of trash was collected! The items collected consisted of decent-sized pieces down to the pesky, small microplastics. Some data was collected on the exact numbers of items collected to use for further research and studies. 33 straws and 634 cigarette butts were among the items sorted through. 

Thank you again to all of the volunteers who came out to make this cleanup possible! We hope to see you at more 4Ocean cleanups in the near future!
