Mission Statement

The Grass Roots Garbage Gang is currently engaged the following volunteer activities: Individual members collecting garbage on a routine basis whenever possible. Encouraging all beach goers in the community to pitch in and collect while on the beach. Conducting quarterly community beach clean ups to cover as much beach as possible. Educating the community about our litter problem through all communications channels; including an inviting web site, handouts and posters, and group presentations. Working with local government, business, community service groups to define ways that the community can contribute, such as tote bags distributed for major beach events. Working with marine industries in our community to reduce dumping.

Description

A small, friendly group of full and part time residents in Ocean Park, Washington, we volunteer time and talents to tackle garbage on the ocean beaches of the Long Beach Peninsula. We call ourselves the Grass Roots Garbage Gang for a simple reason. We are definitely grass roots, all volunteers of all ages, means and backgrounds, utilizing the talents we have, learning as we go, and very clear about our direction and mission.
