Bring your friends and family to the island’s beaches on Sunday, September 28, and help keep our beaches clean and free of materials that can both damage wildlife and adversely affect our own food chain.

In this podcast Sustainable Bainbridge board member Christine Perkins talks with Deb Rudnick, an environmental scientist and chair of the Bainbridge Island Watershed Council, about the many local, national, and international organizations involved in international coastal cleanup, and what we as concerned citizens can do — not just on Beach Cleanup Day, but every day — to improve the health and beauty of our environment.

Beach cleanup volunteers are encouraged to register in advance of the event at  The main effort is focused from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, September 28th, but your help is appreciated anytime.
