 Help us keep our beaches clean!
Show up at any major beach approach at 9:30am on scheduled cleanup days we also appreciate and encourage cleanups any time of year. 

To help in others ways, please email Shelly@OurBeach.org

We are looking for groups to adopt a stretch of beach to clean during regular cleanups. If you have questions or your group is ready to join email join@ourbeach.org If you are an individual looking for a group we will gladly connect you with a good fit.

We are a 501c3 and have begun to solicit Lifetime members at $100 each and Lifetime sponsors at $1000 each  (we will list the sponsors  – if desired).  We hope to raise another $79,000 – that will allow us to become sustainable in perpetuity budget.
 
Help us spread the word!

 On Washington State’s southernmost coast, we boast 28 miles of sandy Pacific Ocean beach.  Like beaches everywhere, it sees a tremendous amount of humanity’s garbage being tossed or washed ashore.

In 2001, a group of local residents began an all-volunteer effort to tackle the garbage along these beaches.  We’ve completed over 48 cleanups and collected nearly 500 tons! We call ourselves the GrassRoots Garbage Gang because that’s what we are,  a very grassroots group of folks who are distressed by the trash on the beaches. Since that time, the effort has mushroomed, with volunteers coming from all over the state to help out at one or all three of the annual cleanups.
