HIC will be in attendance at BOTH of the plastic free Hawaii cleanups on September 16th sponsored by the Kōkua Hawaii Foundation’s Plastic Free Hawaii Program for International Coastal Cleanup. The locations are:
- Kahuku Beach (James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge; enter the gate at Mile Marker 14 and follow banners to the beach)
- Kailua Beach Park (hosted by Kailua Beach Adventures)
Check-in at 8:30am, Cleanup from 9:00am – 11:00am
This is also their Great Sunscreen Trade-in event. Any attendees can bring in their chemical sunscreens to trade-in for free samples of reef safe sunscreen. All chemical sunscreens will be collected for use at a display to help ban oxybenzone in Hawaii.
Please bring a hat, sunscreen & a reusable water bottle for refilling! You’ll also get a free Bee’s Wrap. Bee’s Wrap makes reusable beeswax-based food wraps that serve as an alternative to single-use plastics.
Light snacks will be provided to volunteers.
