Take a walk on the beach with OWOO on Saturday Oct. 16! (Disclaimer: Picking up trash is required)

Like long walks on the beach?

Well, you don’t have to be a romantic to have some fun with the One World One Ocean team as we join forces with the Ocean Conservancy and the Boys & Girls Club this Saturday, October 16 for a grassroots beach clean-up effort in Laguna Beach.

A driving force behind our fearless leader Greg MacGillivray’s decision to launch the One World One Ocean campaign was his experience witnessing the degradation of the ocean in his very own backyard – Laguna Beach.  From a decrease in the number of fish in the reefs he snorkels in to an increase in trash on the beach, he’s seen many changes.

You can help us make a positive impact by coming out to Main Beach to devote a fun-filled morning to cleaning up one of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California.

Kicking things off at 10:00 AM PST on Main Beach, Greg will give brief remarks on his ongoing love affair with the ocean and highlight the importance of protecting it before commencing the beach clean-up effort.

The OWOO team will be on hand filming and snapping photos, and the first 50 participants will receive a free OWOO t-shirt. So be ready for your close-up!

All the trash and recyclable items collected on Saturday will be added to the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup count of trash collected for this year’s campaign.

Over the past 25 years, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup has become the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean health. Nearly nine million volunteers from 152 countries and locations have cleaned 145 million pounds of trash from the shores of lakes, streams, rivers and the ocean on just one day each year.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates as well as post-event photos and video. We hope to see you Saturday!
