The Surfrider Foundation Oahu Chapter is organizing its last beach cleanup of the year at Sunset Beach on the North Shore from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 10. The cleanup, which covers the area between Sunset Beach and Pipeline, is sponsored by Airwalk and San Lorenzo Bikinis, with a planned appearance by surfer-model Anastasia Ashley.

The beach cleanups are organized every month as part of the Surfrider Foundation’s “Rise Above Plastics (RAP)” campaign, which aims to reduce the proliferation of single-use plastic bags and water bottles as well as the No. 1 litter item worldwide — cigarette butts. Airwalk will donate sneakers as well as limited edition, 25th anniversary slippers and backpacks to volunteers who show up at the cleanup (while supplies last). San Lorenzo Bikinis will also give away some of its latest styles at the event.

After the beach cleanup, participants are invited to stay for lunch; volunteers should bring sunscreen, reusable water bottles, gloves and recycled plastic bags to pick up trash.
