Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii is organizing a family-focused beach cleanup at Kewalo Basin Park from 9 a.m. to noon on March 31.

Check in is at 9:30 a.m. Gloves, trash bags and water will be provided. All ages are welcome. After the beach cleanup, there will be a potluck style pa‘ina barbecue, with raffles, games and prizes.

The rubbish collected at Kewalo will be quantified, much of it recycled and some of it repurposed for art, jewelry, product packaging and other uses. Statistics will be reported to NOAA and other agencies.

Visit www.sustainablecoastlineshawaii.org or follow them on Twitter @Coasthuggers and Facebook.

At 6 p.m., participants and community members are invited to Oceandig, an After Party at Fresh Cafe to discuss future strategies for minimizing ocean pollution. Don't miss performances by local reggae artist Mike Love of  Dubkonscious and former American Idol contestant Paula Fuga (who's collaborated with Jack Johnson). Besides live music, there will be a silent auction, cash bar and support from sponsors Styrophobia and Method Cleaning Products. Watch "Bag It," if you haven't already seen it, about how our lives have been taken over by plastic.

Guest speakers include adventurer Dave Cornthwaite, Pangaea Explorations Program Director Emily Penn and NOAA Japan Tsunami Debris specialist Ruth Yenger.
