Northwest Straits Chapter Surfrider Foundation

Make a Difference this Halloween Season by Helping us get the Trash Monster! 

Put on a Halloween costume and head out anytime between October 21st and November 1st for a solo cleanup, send us your photos and win a chance for some sweet treats! Join Surfrider Northwest Straits Chapter, Surfider Western Washington University Club, and RE Sources to get that Trash Monster this fall!
 
Who: Anyone in Whatcom County who wants to lend a hand picking up trash! Just be sure to follow all health and safety guidelines and have fun out there! 
 
When: Complete your cleanup anytime between October 21st and November 1st. Submit your photo along with the rough amount of trash cleaned up to Kirsten by 5 PM on November 1st for a chance to win some prizes, including some t-shirts, soap from Sea Witch Botanicals, and gift certificates to local Ocean Friendly Restaurants! We especially encourage folks to head out on Saturday, October 24th for Make a Difference Day, but anytime that works for you is a good time! 
 
Where: Cleanup around your own neighborhood, favorite trail, park, or beach. You can also check out this hotspot map for ideas on where to go.
 
How: Follow these protocols to protect yourself and watch the above video for tips! 
 
Why: To keep our waterways clean and free of harmful garbage! And because we can’t organize larger cleanups like we usually do because of COVID, we’d love for everyone to still come together as a community to make an impact on the trash monster
