Because We All Want a Clean Marin!
Trash isn't just a problem, it's an ongoing social epidemic. Take an active role in your neighborhood and be a part of the cure!
Litter has a greater impact on our world than just being an eyesore. It washes or blows into storm drains and pollutes our creeks, wetlands, and bays and is harmful and often fatal to birds, animals, and most aquatic species. It is also very expensive to capture and remove from storm drain systems, it's not biodegradable, and it contributes to ocean trash gyres.
Remember, what’s on our streets flows into our creeks!
