Events

Join the Surfrider Foundation as we participate in the ONE FOOT AT A TIME plastic clean-up event.  Throughout the month of October, Surfrider Foundation chapters from around the country will be working to remove plastic litter off beaches and other areas, one square foot at a time.  Our goal again this year is to remove one thousand square feet of plastic from our communities!

Planning your own event to help us reach this goal?  Then maximize participation and awareness by promoting it on Facebook with this  cover photo or by printing out an event flyer.

We’d love to help get the word out about your event by posting event details here, so please email event info to OneFoot@surfrider.org!

If you plan to participate in a cleanup event, don’t forget to bring your resusable bags for collecting trash, and print your One Foot at a Time template to create your trash art mosaic!  Cleanup leaders will be printing a few extra templates, but please come prepared in case supplies run out.  We expect lots of participation!
