CARE For The Cape & Islands Seeks Volunteers For Capewide Cleanup

Filed Under: Non Profit News

This month, the Center for Coastal Studies is promoting the international Plastic Free July campaign, and has partnered with CARE for the Cape and Islands to put together a Capewide remote beach cleanup, “Take Care of Cape Cod” on Thursday, July 31, for the “Think Like It’s 1620” remote beach cleanup, at the culmination of this month-long Plastic Free awareness campaign.

Earlier this year, Take Care of Cape Cod launched the “Think Like It’s 1620” Campaign. This campaign challenges the Cape community to return the environment to the pristine conditions of 1620. By encouraging both 16:20 minute beach cleanups and $16.20 donations to support a water bottle filling station, this campaign challenges us to restore the environment to the state that 1620s residents of Cape Cod – native Wampanoag and visitors alike – would have experienced.

Volunteers are invited to find a beach or other location in their community to clean up for at least 16 minutes and 20 seconds. Sign up for a specific location ahead of time to allow for social distancing and to ensure that the event covers as much of the Cape as possible. To register:

Donations of $16.20 or more to support a water filling station at Pilgrim Monument are gratefully appreciated.
