Aims to Double Its Impact in San Diego County

What: After its postponement and production of a smaller cleanup in 2020 due to COVID-19, I Love A Clean San Diego County (ILACSD) returns the Creek to Bay Cleanup to its traditional annual date during Earth Week on Saturday, April 24, 2021. This year’s environmental event will again operate under the decentralized, socially-distanced model introduced last year where volunteers clean up close to their homes of a favorite outdoor space in need. Organizers aim to double the event’s litter removal impact by issuing a 30,000-pound, one-day challenge to all participants. This is an opportunity for all county residents to safely volunteer and cleanup streets, parks, canyons and beaches within their own neighborhoods.Free online volunteer registration is open at CreektoBay.org.

Organizers want as many people as possible to spend what time they can in their communities. Volunteers are able to participate anytime during the day. Volunteers are urged to submit their cleanup litter totals to the cleanup report form they will receive to help populate the online Volunteer Impact Map – a visual and quantitative measurement of the day’s cleanup efforts.

When: Saturday, April 24, 2021 – 9 AM – Anytime during the day

Where:  Close to home within volunteers’ neighborhood and communities, or a favorite outdoor space in need anywhere in San Diego County.

Why:   All residents of San Diego County live in one of 11 watersheds, which all have their own habitats and lead to our bays and ocean. When litter is left behind, it enters our local watersheds and flows out to the Pacific Ocean, becoming a harmful threat to the health of both marine wildlife and people. Single-use plastics are the most dangerous products, which break down into micro-plastics and are proven to be ingested by animals and humans. This event serves as a learning opportunity to show fellow San Diegans that litter does not belong in San Diego’s environment, to see the direct impact and need to eliminate single-use plastic in our daily lives.

Who: Currently more than4,000 volunteers around the county are registered to participate, including company teams, community groups, scout troops, families and individuals. There is no limit to the number of volunteers who can participate. It is estimated over 6,000 people of all ages will participate in litter removal to help restore the region’s outdoor spaces.
