13,100 Pounds of Marine Debris Removed from Kahuku! 

Wow!!! Check out these numbers posted by the Kokua Hawaii Foundation:

On September 16, 160 volunteers cleaned the Kahuku coastline at James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge, removing a staggering 13,100 lbs. from the beach for International Coastal Cleanup Day. Most of the debris were entanglements of fishing nets and ropes. 2,100 lbs. of this debris were recycled with the Parley for the Oceans project in partnership with Sustainable Coastlines Hawaiʻi. Our second location at Kailua Beach Park was hosted by Kailua Beach Adventures, with 120 volunteers cleaning 285 lbs. from the beach.

Dozens participated in the Great Sunscreen Trade-in, trading in chemical sunscreens for samples of Raw Elements USA reef-safe sunscreen. Plus, all volunteers received free samples of Bee’s Wrap, a plastic-free and reusable food storage wrap.

Steffi and I attended the cleanup events on Saturday. She at the Kailua location and myself & Steve on the North Shore. We even brought a friend of mine visiting from France along to help clean up the beach and we had a great time and made a huge difference. And we LOVE our Bee's Wrap! See you at the next one!
