We'll have a raffle with prizes from local sponsors such as Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks, Muumuu Heaven, Global Village,, and more...We'll be working with a new partner too: Ocean Devotion Hawaii.  Download the flier here. 

What to bring: sunscreen, hat, work gloves, old colanders, water bottles, friends, and a great attitude! Bring any plastic grocery bags you have to give them a second life as trash bags. If your interested, also bring a low-impact lunch box or food to share. That means reusable plates and utensils too. We'll have coolers and other supplies.

We'll also be collecting plastic for Method Soap's new post-consumer recycled bottles made from gyre plastic pollution!
