The San Diego chapter of the Surfrider Foundation organized the 4th Annual Morning After Mess Beach Cleanup Day, on Thursday July 5th. The much-needed event pairs volunteers with post-Independence Day garbage left by 4th of July beach goers.
Every year the city’s resources are challenged by the amount of garbage left in the wake of San Diego’s busiest holiday. Surfrider organizes the annual cleanup to ensure that the trash gets out in its place on July 5th. The result is a clean beach that we can all enjoy again.
The 4th Annual Morning After Mess had over 1,000 volunteers cleanup over 9,000 pounds of trash. Next year don’t forget to participate!
