Surfrider’s Plastic Pollution Initiative uses a multi-pronged approach and the Beach Cleanup program is the first step in reducing the amount of plastic ending up in our waterways, on our beaches and ultimately in the ocean. Our volunteer chapter network conducts local beach cleanups across the nation and removes hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash and recyclables each year.

Each year, The Surfrider Foundation releases the Annual Beach Cleanup Report to review the impacts of our national Beach Cleanup program and highlight the successes, challenges and volunteers that help this program continue to thrive, year after year.
