Wow!!! Check out these numbers posted by the Kokua Hawaii Foundation:
On September 16, 160 volunteers cleaned the Kahuku coastline at James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge, removing a staggering 13,100 lbs from the beach for International Coastal Cleanup Day. Most of the debris were entanglements of fishing nets and ropes. 2,100 lbs. of this debris were recycled with the Parley for the Oceans project in partnership with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii. Our second location at Kailua Beach Park was hosted by Kailua Beach Adventures, with 120 volunteers cleaning 285 lbs. from the beach.
Dozens participated in the great sunscreen trade-in, trading in chemical sunscreens for samples of reef-safe sunscreen.
Steffi and Rosie attended the cleanup events on Saturday. Steffi at the Kailua location and Rosie & Steve on the North Shore. Rosie even brought a friend of hers who was visiting from France along to help clean up the beach and they had a great time and made a huge difference. And we all LOVE our Bee’s Wrap… see you at the next one!
