Residents of Guanaja, Roatan & Utila coming together to clean up our coast lines, beaches & canals.

Much of the trash on our streets and in our neighborhoods ends up in our waterways, beginning a long, slow march to the ocean. This trash slowly degrades our ocean, impacts the food we eat as well as the water we drink. Join The Bay Islands Coastal Clean Ip and pledge to TAKE ON THE TRASH. It’s simple – do what you can to reduce your trash impact, clean up an open space near you or join us on the dates we announce on our Facebook page and lets make a difference.

We can all do our part to create clean beaches for everyone to enjoy, cleaner water for fish and marine wildlife, and a healthier ocean for those whose lives depend on it. But it’s going to take all of us coming together to make it happen.

Dates for Opportunity: May 22, 2015 - May 24, 2015
