Green Surfing: Go Clean Up

Sierra Green Beach Clean UpIn celebration of June 20th's International Surfing Day, we'll show you how to feel less guilty about hitting the waves (even if you're skipping class or work to do so).

Tip #3: Join a local beach clean-up crew.

Buying an eco-friendly board is a great first step, but to help keep even more plastic out of the ocean, join your local Sierra Club or Surfrider chapter on one of their regularly scheduled beach clean-up trips. (Also check out the Surfrider website for a slew of celebratory, environmentally friendly events for the June 20th holiday!) 

Or, on flat days, organize your own clean-up crew with your friends or put together your own Meet-Up group.
