2021 Beach Cleanup Report Toolkit

Surfrider is proud to release our third annual Beach Cleanup Report, which highlights the impact of our national Beach Cleanup program during 2021, along with regional stories and how our network continued the fight for a more sustainable future for all.

Our Beach Cleanup program is fundamental in addressing the Plastic Pollution crisis. In addition to engaging over 15,000 volunteers and actively removing hundreds of thousands of pounds of trash each year, we can effectively utilize beach cleanup data to advance legislative policy and make a lasting positive impact on our environment.

We emerged into 2021 with fresh ideas to engage our network of activists on every level, with both in-person and solo cleanup opportunities. As a result of this effort, Surfrider surpassed a longstanding goal of recording 1,000 annual cleanups in our database, resulting in a historic year for our program.

Our achievements from 2021 are a testament to the dedication of Surfrider’s grassroots network and demonstrate that we can face challenges head on—all while working towards a plastic-free tomorrow.

To help spread the message we’ve put together a toolkit, which includes the report, social copy and graphics and general images that you can use to help promote the report.
