Best Ways to Celebrate National Clean Beaches Week
Quench – Founded in 2003, Clean Beaches Week is a seven-day celebration recognizing and embracing the importance of clean beaches and in 2007, both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives passed resolutions enacting the week by unanimous consent.
There are four (4) initial themes that highlight the importance of beaches to all Americans:
- Environment: During the biggest beach visitation day in America, the 4th of July, the public will be strongly urged to “leave no trace” of litter, only footprints.
- Dining: Americans are encouraged to have a healthy meal, specially seafood, during their visit to the beach.
- Recreation: The public is urged to get out and get active by playing, surfing, fishing, walking or reading during their beach visit.
- Travel: Reduce your carbon footprint when visiting the ocean, gulf, and inland beaches though energy efficiency, conservation, carpooling, walking and other green activities.
