Earth Day 2014: the Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up is coming to a shoreline near you
The Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up and you:
Aquatic debris is one of the biggest threats currently facing our oceans and waterways. Fortunately, this is a problem that we can tackle hands-on. By participating in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, you can actually see the impact you’ve had over the course of a single day.
Every year, tens of thousands of Canadians take action against aquatic debris by participating in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, presented by Loblaw Companies Limited. Jointly led by the Vancouver Aquarium and WWF, this initiative focuses on educating and empowering people to make a difference through community cleanup events.
Today, the Shoreline Cleanup is one of the largest environmental events in Canada and the third largest cleanup in the world. Awareness and support for the program grows each year, dramatically increasing our impact as the public starts to better understand how shoreline litter adversely affects both aquatic life and people.
