Beach Cleanup Checklist

by Brightmark September 8th, 2022

At Brightmark, our mission of Reimagining Waste spans farther than our business model—it’s a mantra we follow to positively impact the environments and communities we serve. Our “trash tracker” beach cleanup checklist is a dedicated resource for helping you notate the waste you collect during a beach or coastal cleanup. Tally the trash you find and see what items you collect the most. Share your findings and encourage brands and businesses to create environmentally conscious products—helping us all create a world without waste.

Do you want extra brownie points? Share our beach cleanup checklist with others!
