Dear Friend of the Ocean,

Cigarette butts, plastic bags, toilet seats, washing machines, abandoned fishing gear—what haven’t we found in the ocean?

Over the past 25 years of Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup, more than 8.5 million volunteers have removed 145 million pounds of trash, including 53 million cigarette butts, 14 million food wrappers and containers, 13 million caps and lids … the list goes on and on.

It’s the largest volunteer effort of its kind, and I hope you’ll join us for our 26th annual International Coastal Cleanup by signing up for a Cleanup near you or organizing your own. But don’t delay—there are just two days left to sign up!

Thanks for all you do to help care for the ocean.
