Emergency Beach Cleanup

Join us this weekend for two (2) emergency beach clean ups. The recent rain kicked up a storm and littered our shores with 1,000s of pieces of trash, details below.

The tide is pushing in most of the trash, so we have chosen to go out at low tide to catch as much as possible.

Supplies will be provided.

We hope to see you there.

Please RSVP cwlee.nyc@gmail.com to join.

Thank you to the amazing 10 volunteers that came out to support our cleanup this past Saturday, which included members of Rotary Club of Santa Monica, Venice Beach BID, and the Venice Chamber of Commerce. We collected 13x 22-gallon trash bags full of garbage off the beach, up North Venice as far as Dell Avenue and back down South Venice to the beach.

Looking forward to our next cleanup led by Venice Chamber of Commerce held on March 13, 7.30am-9.30am PST. See you then

Two Cleanup Opportunities!: Feb 20, 2021

There are TWO opportunities for you to contribute to the community this coming Saturday, February 20! First off, the Venice Chamber is providing their Chamber in Action Pop Up Clean Up on Washington Blvd between Abbot Kinney and Lincoln. Parking is available for FREE at the Firestone Walker Brewery. They’ll be starting at 7:30am and will be providing coffee afterwards for your early effort! If interested, please RSVP with Brennan Lindner at brennan@genericevents.com.

After the Venice Chamber wraps, join us at the beach for our regular biweekly community led cleanup! We meet in front of IT’SUGAR at 9am and will go until 11am. Bags, hand sanitizer, and gloves will be provided. If interested, please RSVP with Christopher Lee at cwlee.nyc@gmail.com.

Cleanup Results: Feb 6, 2021

Thank you the amazing 13 volunteers that came out to support our cleanup this past Saturday! We collected 15x 22 gallon trash bags full of garbage off the beach, bike path, park, and boardwalk! Especially touching was our youngest volunteer – her willingness to get involved at such a young age was a great reminder about why we do this. We do these cleanups to leave a better world behind for the people that come after us!

Looking forward to our next cleanup, to be held on Feb 20, 9a PST. See you then!

Cleanup maps now available!

“Heat maps” of our cleanup efforts are now up and running! This map will appear on the lower half of the main page and will indicate how recently an area was cleaned up.

Green areas indicate that an area was addressed by a cleanup within the last two (2) weeks.

Yellow areas indicate that an area was addressed by a cleanup between two (2) and four (4) weeks ago.

Red areas indicate that an area was addressed by a cleanup between four (4) and six (6) weeks ago.

It is our intention that this map will inform community driven cleanup efforts, allowing for us to take care all of Venice! As you can see from the data that we already have on the map, there’s a lot of Venice that could use our time and attention.

We look forward to seeing you at our next cleanup!
