The 15th Annual Lahaina Town Clean Up event is in support of Mālama Maui Nui's “Get the Drift and Bag It!” campaign, in conjunction with The Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Clean Up Day.
“Get the Drift and Bag It!” is an opportunity for residents and visitors alike to join in a global effort to remove litter and debris from our coastal environment. The statewide campaign is a part of the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup that kicks off annually the third Saturday in September. The ICC engages hundreds of thousands of volunteers each year to take action for the ocean and for the creatures that depend on it (including humans). Over its 30+ years of existence, approximately 10.5 million people have picked up some 192 million pounds of litter across more than 150 countries. over 200 volunteers in 2018 filled a 40 Foot Dumpster and cleaned from Puamana to Mala Wharf on land and sea in Lahaina Town!
Over the past 15 years thousands of Volunteers have come together to help clean up over 7 square miles of town from the beach to the highway, including two boat harbors, 7 surf spots, and numerous parks with divers, students, parents, and volunteers a like, in the largest longest ongoing Town Clean Up we know of in Hawaiʻi...We are so proud of you all and look forward to having you this year.
