Why Support I Love A Clean San Diego?

Our organization’s efforts have a major impact on the San Diego community. Here are some of our accomplishments in 2013:

  • Our one of a kind hotline and database, fielded close to 19,000 requests for recycling information. Without this vital resource, residents would be left with nowhere to turn for recycling and proper disposal of hazardous items.  This diverts countless amounts of waste from San Diego’s landfills, and prevents illegal dumping in our communities.

  • Community Cleanups: We coordinated almost 31,000 volunteers last year to remove 360,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from San Diego’s beaches, waterways, canyons, and parks. This debris is a threat to public health, wildlife, and the natural ecosystems in San Diego. 
  • Environmental Education: We empowered over 30,000 youth and adults in San Diego to make a positive impact on their environment. We know that youth hold the key to the environmental future of our community and our planet. Education provides inspiration to change their behaviors, helping minimize our community’s ecological footprint.
