You can participate by simply walking around your neighborhood or along a body of water and cleaning up trash on your own, or you can do something as complex as organizing a dive with your local community to clean up a stretch of one of your dive sites.

Regardless of which option you choose:
  • Please register for the event so we can send you some materials for recording your efforts.
  • During your cleanup, share photos or videos using #GUEvTrash on Facebook or Instagram.
  • After your cleanup is over, you’ll be asked to submit a form telling us how much trash your team collected (in kg or lbs), how many people were on your team, and where your cleanup took place.
Please make sure to follow your region’s COVID-19 guidelines.
