Volunteers numbering 141 came from as far away as Anahiem, Whittier, Topanga and Cota De Coza to play a role during the California Coastal Clean Up Day at Aliso Beach Park last Saturday, Sept. 16.
Volunteers, including 23 Laguna Beach residents and Mayor Toni Iseman, picked up 346 pounds of trash. Litter ranged from discarded personal hygiene products to sleeping bags as well as cigarette butts and single use plastics, says a statement from James Pribram, founder of the Eco-Warrior Foundation and clean-up host.
Volunteers were treated to Chronic Tacos and prizes donated by RVCA Sport and Laguna Surf and Sport, Pribram said.
So far this year, foundation supporters have removed nearly 2,400 pounds of trash from beaches, oceans and waterways.
