Join some local folks on Saturday, November 20 for a short beach sweep. This is an informal group of people who will meet up and spread out on the island to pick up litter, with a focus on the dreaded cigarette butts.
You choose your favorite spot on the island, but the unofficial meeting place will be near the gazebo at the Carolina Beach boardwalk before 10 a.m. This is conveniently located close to the Pleasure Island Fresh Market, so you can do a little shopping for produce, baked goods, and other items before or after the sweep.
This is a no frills event. There are no prizes and no free food (at least not planned) and you should come prepared with gloves, trash bags, etc. Remember, we’re not just going for the big stuff, but the cigarette butts.
The time for this event will be 10 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. so it won’t take up much of your weekend, but the more people who show up, the bigger the impact will be. So, come out and meet some new people and kick a little butt on Pleasure Island.
