The goal of Clean Ocean Action’s Beach Sweeps is to reduce and eliminate sources of litter by engaging people in volunteer efforts to clean beaches in New Jersey. During the bi-annual event, volunteers pick-up and remove debris, and record and calculate data about the debris. The data collected provides a legacy of information that can be used to identify sources of pollution, monitor trends, and discover and promote solutions. -CleanOceanAction For the sweep, almost 154,000 pieces of debris were recovered »
Philly Surf Crew supports local organizations that put time and effort into caring for the environment. Surfrider’s Jersey Shore Chapter participates each year in a program that focuses on replenishing and replanting dune grass to stave off erosion and protect the beaches.
Philly Surf Crew’s, “Women in the Waves” initiative seeks to increase the number of women entering the sport by creating an atmosphere of learning that plays to individual strengths in a group setting. Group introduction to surf culture is critical to building a strong foundation of community minded instruction and a healthy respect for the ocean and the surrounding environment.
