Volunteers Needed: California Coastal Cleanup Day

11/18/2009 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

Last year, over 70,000 volunteers picked up over 1.6 million pounds of trash from California beaches. This year, the annual California Coastal Cleanup Day is aiming even higher and wants even more volunteers to get involved.

Each county in California has a local coordinator that you can find through the state's participation page.

In addition, those of you who haven't boycotted Whole Foods can take comfort in knowing that 5% of all the market's revenue on Tuesday, September 22, will go to California Coastal Cleanup Day's fund for next year's event.

Want to help but can't attend? Join the CCCD Facebook group and spread the word to your friends, that is, if you can stop with Yoville for five seconds.

Also, even though you're going to the beach, don't wear flip flops. You're going to be doing a lot of walking over what may be some pretty filthy areas. Wear solid shoes, long pants and sunscreen.
