As Robin Meadows wrote in the most recent edition of the Monitor, trash poses a serious threat to our waterways. In addition to describing policy solutions for targeting the problem, she also mentioned how members of the general public help stem the tide of trash by participating in Coastal Cleanup Day every September. Another notable occasion for such large-scale volunteer cleanup efforts is Earth Day, coming up soon on April 22. Numerous Earth Day cleanup events will take place around the Bay Area in the next few weeks, and for those who would like to pitch in, here are a few to consider:
