Come down and join the Black Surfers Collective as we captain the Inkwell site for Coastal Cleanup day 2014. We look forward to making our beach sparkle as we leave nothing but sand behind. This years event will be on Saturday, Sept 20th 2014. We will be joining the 65,000 other Californians the love a respect their beaches on this day. The cleanup is from 9 am to 1 pm and we will probably have a group surf right after the last bag is weighed! Here is the information off of the Heal The Bay website:
BE A CHANGING FORCE FOR THE FUTURE AND DEFEND CLEAN WATER
Join the biggest volunteer day on the planet on Saturday, September 20, 2014, as thousands of southern Californians remove pollution and unnatural debris from over 50 beach and inland locations.
Last year, more than 11,000 Angelenos removed 24,000 pounds of trash from nearly 50 sites throughout the city! All that trash, if left to enter the watershed, could have devastating consequences. Plastics disolve into food-like particles, causing harm to to marine life and underwater ecosystems. Not only does Coastal Cleanup Day help cleanup up the beaches from all that rubbish, but it also helps Angelino’s think about the the small steps we can take every day to keep our planet healthy.
You can help us keep this going by raising the funds that make our work possible. We’ve made it easier than ever to personally fundraise for Coastal Cleanup Day. Once you sign up, you can create a fundraising page and share with friends and family. Volunteers who raise $100 or more get a Heal the Bay t-shirt!

Why is Coastal Cleanup Day important?
Trash in the ocean compromises human and wildlife health, which affects the livelihoods of millions all over the planet. We all need clean water.
Every little piece of paper, cigarette butt or bottle cap that makes its way to street sewers ends up in streams or rivers and eventually down to the ocean.
Oceans are the largest part of our water cycle, generating oxygen and rain necessary to sustain life on Earth.
