This Saturday: California's Biggest Beach Cleanup
Californians will once again to flock to beaches, lakes, and waterways for the 26th annual California Coastal Cleanup Day this Saturday, Sept. 25. The event is one of California's largest volunteer efforts, and since it started in 1985, it has inspired people to remove more than 14 million pounds of debris from the state's coastline.
Committed to protecting California's marine environment, the state's Fairmont hotels and resorts have pledged 1,000 volunteers to assist in the cleanup. The luxury hotel chain was "founded on an enduring connection to the land, communities, and people" said Tom Klein, a regional vice president. "Coastal Cleanup Day teaches all Californians that our everyday actions have broad implications for the well-being of our oceans and the habitat and wildlife that depend on them."
