A Capri Sun washed up in seaweed on the beach

Trash on our beaches is a growing problem.  The cans and the volunteers can’t keep up with the volume, but it doesn’t have to be that way.  Helping eliminate unnecessary trash, not bringing certain things to the beach and then doing your part to dispose of trash through proper recycling is important to protecting what we have here.

Ensuring garbage cans are not over the top and spilling, keeping cigarette butts out of the sand, away from children and wildlife, keeping plastic bags away from our waterways, and keeping our beaches pristine is a job we all need to own. It is up to us…It’sUp2U.

Pick It Up, Pack It Out - Community Coalition

This page provides information on PICK IT UP, PACK IT OUT, a campaign developed out of the need to remind each other—and our guests how important it is to take a role in keeping beaches clean.  We share PICK IT UP, PACK IT OUT with you—individuals, organizations and businesses—to use.  Help us grow awareness for the need to assist in keeping our beautiful seaside places free of litter.

The PICK IT UP, PACK IT OUT CAMPAIGN is a message all of us can carry forward.

We ask that, when it makes sense, you mention KBB and this campaign in news releases, include the PICK IT UP, PACK IT OUT graphic in ads and emails, and discover other ways to share the message.

To teach others about the campaign, send them to this page.

Trash spilling out from garbage cans on the beach.

THIS IS ONE OF OUR BEACHES. The volunteers–and the cans–just can’t keep up. This is a matter of volume and economics. Many people play a role. Many people volunteer. But it’s not enough. We need to reduce what we bring and help carry out when we leave. Maybe, by example, we can make a difference in how others treat our home.

A pile of trash on the beach

PLASTICS NEED TO BE RECYCLED. Too many of our wildlife are harmed, including by plastic bags, left on our beaches. Plastic bags fly and some pieces of hard plastic just look like food to unsuspecting birds and turtles and other creatures of the land or sea. It’s our job to ensure these dangers don’t exist.
