Lāʻie Beach Cleanup Yields 975 Pounds of Marine Debris

May 02, 2018

On Saturday, March 31, 62 volunteers came out for a Plastic Free Hawaiʻi beach cleanup at Lāʻie Beach Park (a.k.a. Pounders), cleaning 975 pounds of plastic pollution from both Lāʻie and Hukilau Beach Parks. Fishing nets and ropes, oyster spacer plastic tubes, and other fishing and aquaculture materials were some of the most common items found. Straws and other food and beverage single-use plastics were also among the common types of debris cleaned. A big thank you to our volunteers as well as to our sponsor Guaranteed Rate!
