We had a great time cleaning up Maruta Gardner Park in Mission Beach and leaving the playground, park and beach cleaner than we found them! The cleanup resulted in 8 lbs. of trash that would have ended up in the surrounding bay or ocean. Much of the trash was take-out food packaging and single-use plastics from snack wrappers and water bottle caps. Thank you to all the attendees for helping keep San Diego clean! Stay tuned for our next cleanup announcement.
