On September 15th, Plastic Free Hawaii will be teaming up with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii and a bunch of local organizations to help out the largest coastal cleanup Kailua has ever seen. The cleanup is in celebration of the beauty of Kailua and Lanikai.  It is also the 27th International Coastal Clean Up Day with Ocean Conservancy. Clean ups and data collection will be taking place around the island and across the globe.

Volunteers can find a check in point at any beach access from Castles to Lanikai 9:30am -12:00pm. The Plastic Free Hawaii Team will be greeting groups at Kailua Beach Park across from Buzz's. We will also have an educational craft booth for keiki of all ages at the after party 12-5pm in Lanikai Park. We'll be right next to our friends from Ocean Devotion. RSVP on Facebook!  To volunteer your school group or for more information email us at
