JOIN DA HUI FOR THE ANNUAL NORTH SHORE BEACH CLEAN UP
WHY ARE BEACH CLEANUPS IMPORTANT? Hawai'i's coast and waterways have historically been collecting spots for annual accumulations of trash and debris. This debris, if not removed, can be harmful and even fatal to all manners of marine wildlife, can damage our state's economy, and can even become a human health hazard. Da Hui Beach Clean Up is a great way for families, students, service groups, and neighbors to join together, take care of our fragile marine environment, show community support for our shared natural resources, learn about the impacts of marine debris and how we can prevent them, and to have fun! Last year, 600 participants collected 2.85 tons (5,700 pounds) of trash. Of the trash collected, 750 pounds of plastic will be diverted from the landfills and converted into bottles by Method Cleaning Products.
