Join a cleanup to celebrate International Coastal Cleanup Day on Sept. 21

Toronto, Sept. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This year, the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup — Canada’s largest community-led, volunteer-powered conservation cleanup program — is celebrating International Coastal Cleanup Day with events in four cities from coast to coast. Energetic volunteers will mark the event in September by taking action against litter at cleanup events, including one at Cherry Beach in Toronto.

This event is one of four Shoreline Cleanups in Canadian cities, including Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax. The Shoreline Cleanup program is a partnership of Ocean Wise® and World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF-Canada), and is presented by Loblaw Companies Limited and Coca-Cola Ltd.

Over the last 26 years of the program, Shoreline Cleanup participants have cleaned nearly 40,000 kilometres of shoreline, picking up more than 1.7 million kg of litter and preventing it from entering the water, where it can harm wildlife.

Media are invited to attend the cleanup, where Megan Leslie, president and CEO of WWF-Canada, will provide welcoming remarks. 

When: Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019

  • 9:30 a.m.: Registration opens
  • 10:00 a.m.: Welcoming remarks
  • Noon: Closing remarks, results reporting and prizes
  • 12:15: Snacks
