It's an international annual event that draws some 14,000 people in Los Angeles County who altogether pickup around 300,000 pounds of trash from the beaches and inland waterways. Coastal Cleanup Day is September 25th and local organizer Heal the Bay is calling for action, asking people to a few hours that Saturday morning.

Considering the number of locations, the event is pretty easy to participate in -- even supplies are provided if you don't bring your own and parking at all sites are free until 1 p.m.

“The ocean needs us now more than ever and we all have a duty to protect it,” said Eveline Bravo, Heal the Bay's beach programs manager. “A single day of concerted action and education can make a world of difference.”
