Beach Cleanup in Cozumel
Cozumel Quintana Roo
Beach Cleanup in Cozumel

I've been coordinating and hosting beach clean ups twice a month for one and a half year in Quintana Roo, Mexico. About a month ago I traveled to the island of Cozumel, where I found marine debris that traveled with ocean currents and landed in this beautiful island. As I recorded and took photographs, I knew I had to go back and host a beach clean up to celebrate World Ocean's Day with the local community. The amount of plastics and micro plastics is overwhelming, so I know that one beach clean up won't be enough. I will use this day to inform and educate about the importance of changing our daily habits. About how connected we all are in this Planet and the urgency of stop using plastic.

The Cahaba River
Big Cahaba Cleanup

Don't litter--it ends up in your River!

Cahaba River Society brings you the largest ever one-day Cahaba Cleanup event where we will clean up to 50 miles of the River through the heart of Alabama!

What: The largest-ever 1-day Cahaba River Cleanup will cover up to 50 miles of the Cahaba River – Alabama’s longest remaining free-flowing river and the “biological heart” of American’s Amazon.

Why: To restore natural beauty and reduce pollution of this iconic river (and a primary source of Birmingham’s drinking water) while educating the public about reducing litter in our waterways and encouraging recycling.

When: Saturday, June 8, 2019. Registration at 8 a.m. at designated sites. Shuttles run between 8-9a.m. between sites and Cleanup begins at 9 a.m.

Where: Up to 50 miles of the Cahaba River in up to 7 stretches from Trussville to Helena, AL.

Who: Cahaba River Society, volunteers, community and corporate sponsors and partners.

To volunteer in the Cleanup, please contact:

Gordon Black, Education Director, Cahaba River Society
email: clean@cahabariversociety.org

More information:

Since our beginnings, Cahaba River Society has led volunteers in cleaning up areas of the River. The Big Cahaba Cleanup will condense and amplify the efforts and impacts of volunteers through a one-day project engaging people from Cahaba communities across all sectors, offering opportunities for corporate partners, civic and faith groups, local governments, and individuals to make an impact in cleaning up the Cahaba River.

This large, new event will not only clean more trash, it will also draw media coverage for widespread public education encouraging people and businesses to do their part to clean up and recycle their litter to keep it from getting into the river where it impacts drinking water & wildlife.

“River Teams” of 10 to 20 volunteers in canoes and kayaks will clean each section, with all groups putting in at roughly the same time at up to 7 different locations. These teams may be organized by businesses, churches, civic groups, universities, neighborhoods or other communities. Each will be led by a “River Leader” skilled in paddling, river safety, and river trip organization. Shore Teams will each of a “Shore Leader” and those teams will focus on supporting the River Teams while also cleaning up the river access sites.

1. Start a recycling program in your school or community
2. Be creative and show ways that products can be reused or upcycled into another form
3. Start a kitchen garden and grow some of your own food. You don’t need a big yard for this.

4. Start a compost heap
5. Compose a jingle, recite a poem about helping the environment
6. And the list goes on

7. Remove plastic from your environment....
