Jacksonville Coastal Cleanup Day 2014

Comments Off on Jacksonville Coastal Cleanup Day 2014

Volunteers are needed for Jacksonville Coastal Cleanup Day 2014 on Sat, Sept 20th at several beaches in the area. Contact Keep Jacksonville Beautiful.Approximately 71% of the earth is covered in water.  One-half to three-quarters of a human body is made up of water.  Living in Jacksonville, we are very aware of how important a role water plays in our lives.   Any trash left on our local beaches can be swept away into the ocean, polluting the water and causing potential harm to the inhabitants that reside both in and above the water.  Jacksonville Coastal Cleanup Day 2014 needs volunteers to help clean up our beaches to make sure that they are enjoyed by many generations to come.
