Beach Cleanups

Help Keep our Beaches Healthy and Thriving

Surfrider's Beach Cleanup program is committed to preserving the beauty and ecological balance of our pristine beaches. With the support of enthusiastic volunteers, we work tirelessly to ensure that our shores remain healthy, vibrant, and free from pollution. Through the organization of regular cleanup events, we actively involve the community in this important cause. Together, we make a positive impact on our environment, instilling a sense of responsibility and stewardship for the natural world. Join our dedicated team of volunteers and become a part of this impactful movement to protect and preserve our precious coastal ecosystems.


A huge shoutout to the 350 amazing volunteers who went above and beyond to clear over 500 pounds of trash at our 3 beach cleanups during April's Earth Month celebration. Want to be a part of the change? Come join us for our cleanups in May!

What purpose do beach cleanups serve?

Encouraging People to Take Action
South Sound Surfrider invites individuals from diverse backgrounds to come together and participate in monthly beach cleanups, armed with a range of tools aimed at taking action and spreading awareness through education.

Generating Public Awareness
Engaging in South Sound's beach cleanups empowers individuals to shine a spotlight on waste-related pollution and proactively clean up litter along our coastlines.

Targeting the Heart of the Problem
By reporting South Sound beach cleanup data, our volunteers play a vital role in pollution research, shaping future legislation, and safeguarding our coasts and oceans for generations to come.



Surfrider South Sound hosted 11 beach cleanups in & around the southern Puget Sound with 500 volunteers who collected over 4555+ pounds of trash in 2023.
