Kids Unite!

Nearly 1,200 students and volunteers attended our first ever bi-national Kids' Ocean Day! After cleaning up the beach, students stood together to create this cross-border aerial art image - it reads"Unite por el mar" which translates to "Unite for the sea".

Clean Beach Coalition

Help keep our beaches prestine during the summer holidays!

Summer is fast approaching! During Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day, San Diego’s beaches will see over 1 million beach-goers. Along with increased foot-traffic comes a significant influx in trash and littering.

In an effort to address the issues of litter and pollution facing San Diego’s beloved coastline, The Clean Beach Coalition places 100 temporary trash and recycling bins at Mission Beach, Ocean Beach, Pacific Beach, and Mission Bay during the holiday weekend. If you spot the bins, we challenge you to take a selfie of you using them! Share photos with ILACSD on Instagram by tagging @iloveacleansd.
