Environmental & Economic Hazards

Marine life can easily be entangled in fishing line, nets, and six-pack rings. Fish, birds and turtles mistake trash like styrofoam, plastics, and cigarette butts for food, which may eventually lead to starvation.

 

Marine debris weakens coastal economies by sapping dollars from the tourism and seafood industries. Tourism in Lee County contributed $2 billion to the regional economy last year, and we'd like to keep it that way.

 

Cleaning Beaches

Keep Lee County Beautiful, supported by the Ocean Conservancy and Florida Fish & Wildlife, organizes coastal cleanups in the fall to remove debris along our shoreline. In the last five years, our Coastal Cleanup program has brought together more than 11,000 volunteers to remove over 90,000 pounds of trash from Lee County waterways.

 

International Coastal Cleanup

Keep Lee County Beautiful is the Lee County coordinator for Ocean Conservancy's annual International Coastal Cleanup, the largest volunteer effort of its kind. Every September for 31 years, ICC has motivated over nine million people from around the world to pick up over 144 million pounds of trash from nearly 300,000 miles of shoreline.

 

Get involved!

If you'd like to be a Site Coordinator for a Lee County coastal cleanup, email Mike Thomas at Mike@klcb.org to stake your claim. If you know of other sites in need of help, please let us know.

 

Corporate Sponsorships & Cleanups

Keep Lee County Beautiful is seeking corporate partners who will help support our fall coastal cleanup program, either financially or through in-kind gifts of needed supplies. With your support, Keep Lee County Beautiful can coordinate a corporate cleanup for your organization. To learn more, please email Mike Thomas.
