This is the Earth Day for Beaches. Founded in 2003, National Clean Beaches Week is held annually from July 1-7. Each year Americans make 2 billion visits to ocean, gulf, and inland beaches. During Clean Beaches Week, the public will be encouraged to reduce their carbon footprint though energy efficiency, conservation, carpooling, walking and other green activities.
The 4th of July is the biggest beach holiday in America—and the MOST LITTERED. During Clean Beaches Week, the public will be strongly urged to “leave no trace” of litter, only footprints at the beach.
