Connecticut Cleanup

Dan Perkins Subaru Beach Cleanup

September 18th 2022
Gulf Beach Milford, Ct.

What an awesome event and thank to all the volunteers who gave their Sunday morning to clean up one of the most popular beaches in our community.

Save the Sound was on hand to coordinate the event with absolute precision.

At first glance, the beach looked clean with very little debris.
Our volunteers scoured the beach for about two hours and collected about 70 pounds of garbage including an amazing over 2500 cigarette butts.

Lots of plastic straws, small pieces of plastic and plastic bottle caps also made up the bulk of the items collected and even though these items are small, they have a huge impact to the health of our shoreline and our marine animals.

We had families, friends and staff come out to help which made the event a lot of fun.

Thankfully, other than a lot of wind the weather was perfect.
