Surfers and non-surfers alike, mark your calendars for the "Da Hui North Shore Beach Clean Up" on Saturday, Nov. 10.
Check-in time is 8 a.m. at Turtle Bay Resort, where different groups will then be shuttled to various zones for the beach cleanup and treasure hunt scheduled between 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Enjoy a free barbecue and live music afterwards at about 11 a.m. from Mike Love, Paula Fuga and other bands, plus a pro-surf autograph session at 12:30 p.m.
Quiksilver, Hurley, Volcom, Oakley and others are sponsoring the event.
All debris collected from the beach cleanup will be tallied and reported to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Hard plastics will also go to Method to be transformed into recycled packaging. Method recently came out with the first bottles made from a blend of plastic debris collected from Oahu's shores for its dish + hand soap, available at Whole Foods Market.
