Beach cleanup needs volunteers

NEW HAVENTrailblazer and United By Blue will hold a volunteer beach cleanup from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 11) at Long Wharf Park.
Those who want to participate should meet at 10 a.m. to learn the basics of the clean up operation. Volunteers are not required to stay the entire session and all necessary information and supplies will be provided. You can register online here.

"Soak up the New Haven Harbor scenery and stretch of notable historic buildings while we work together to restore the pristine beauty of trash-free beaches. Enjoy refreshments then plan on experiencing a fun and educational event, (including prizes) with a difference you can actually see. Bring yourself. Bring your family and friends. Come ready for a great time," Trailblazer said in a statement.
United By Blue, which designs, manufacturers, and sells a line of sustainable apparel and accessories, uses sale proceeds to conduct an ongoing cleanup of oceans and other waterways, according to a statement. The company tracks what is collected at cleanup in an attempt both to find ways to prevent dumping and because as part of its business model, the company removes 1 lb. of trash for every 1 product sold, the statement said.
