With Earth Day just around the corner, here is a challenge: Join-in on some spring cleaning and make your cleanup zero-waste this weekend!

Need help to organize a zero-waste cleanup? We have you covered! Here is a quick checklist of items that will help you reduce your impact while you clean up our coasts and Great Lakes. Organize your own cleanup and recruit your friends, family and your local community to join-in, roll-up those sleeves, and get rid of debris!earthday-checklist

Organizations across the country are holding coastal cleanups this month. We’ve highlighted a few across the country on our website. We can also help you find a cleanup  near you or give you tips on how to start your own. Just email us at
