In honor of its 35th Anniversary, Costa Sunglasses partnered with Surfrider Foundation to host beach cleanups in 35 locations throughout the U.S. The beach cleanups were a huge success thanks to everyone who participated and played a role in Costa’s ongoing commitment to the health of our oceans and waterways.
The 35 beach cleanups took place between September 15 (International Coastal Cleanup Day) and December 22, 2018 with thousands of volunteers joining us to help Kick Plastic. Here’s a look at the impact of Costa’s 35th Anniversary beach cleanup initiative:
- Beaches: 35
- Participants: 3,976
- Pounds of trash removed: 7,698
