Celebrating Earth Day in this way is slowly becoming a tradition- as our Annual Island Wide Cleanup initiative continues to gain traction.

Here, volunteers in Maia collect debris along the coast near the Aveiro waterfall.

A HUGE thank you to all of our 114 volunteers and leaders that joined us today for our 2nd Annual Island Wide Coastal Cleanup for Earth Day! Together, from 9 locations in 2 hours, we removed more than a tonne of ocean litter! 1,638kg of plastic, metal, glass, rubber, textiles, ropes & ghost gear was collected from our coastline. That is more than the weight of an average car! And more than 3 times the amount we collected last year for our Island Wide Coastal Cleanup!! Amazing work!!
