Beach Clean-Up

Tacoma Shoreline Survey & Cleanup 2021

Woohoo – What a success!

Picking up trash off a beach is a good thing. But if you can count it for science, then toss it into a giant octopus sculpture, it’s even better. That’s exactly what Tacomans did at the annual Tacoma Shoreline Survey & Cleanup on June 5, 2021!

We had 187 folks show up, pick up over 700lbs of trash, fill the Trashoctopus and several big dumpsters and leave our beaches super-clean – THANK YOU, EVERYONE!! We also racked up a ton of great data on the Clean Swell app: For full details, head over to The Ikkatsu Project.

Big thanks to clean-up partners South Sound Surfrider and the Ikkatsu Project!
