We welcome schools, companies, external groups to join our mega-cleanup campaign. No need to register individually – just shoot an email to email@example.com with the group name and headcount you wish to participate. We would allocate a dedicate beach zone to your group.
To keep this green effort free for volunteers we need sponsors for garbage bags and gloves.
