Restore Kauai
Description:
Join the Surfrider Foundation at Restore Kauai. We'lll be working on loading two 40-ft containers with debris we have pulled off the shores. The containers will be sent off-island and the debris will be recycled into running shoes. Please join us from 9-noon with lunch to follow. For more info call 635-2593

Surfrider Kauai joins with other community groups and visitors in doing regularly scheduled beach clean-ups throughout the year. We are proud to be one of the most active Surfrider chapters in the world. We collect rubbish and marine debris from our beautiful coastlines. Kauai Coffee has donated re-usable burlap sacks to collect the garbage in, so no new plastic bags are used. It is important to remove the garbage, especially the plastics, as they are poisonous to sea life when ingested, often entangle the animals, and remain in the ocean forever. The nets we collect are shipped to Oahu and burned to make electricity.
