Beach Cleanup before Hands Across the Sand

  • Indian Rocks Beach 700 Gulf Boulevard Indian Rocks Beach, FL, 33785 United States (map)

Come for the trash, stay for the activism. Join us for a beach cleanup directly prior to Hands across the Sand! Cleanup supplies will be provided by the Suncoast Rise Above Plastics Coalition. Just bring your lovely selves, some sunscreen, and plenty of water. The cleanup will culminate in the larger Hands Across the Sand Event.

BONUS COMPETITION: Take a pic of the weird things you find on your search and post them to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Tag us @suncoastRAP and #riseaboveplastics to be entered into a draw to win a 40oz Takeya insulated flask. Drawing will occur at the end of May.


About Hands Across the Sand

Join hands with your neighbors, coworkers, friends, and family and say NO TO FUTURE OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING OR FRACKING IN FLORIDA!

People around the world are joining hands to draw a literal line in the sand to show our resolve against oil rigs in our waters. After we hold hands join us for the paddle out! Bring your surfboard, paddleboard, boogeyboard, or other floatable device and let's paddle out to peacefully protest offshore drilling and fracking in our waters. Do you have more than one board? Bring your extras and a friend!

We'll use aerial photography to capture this powerful message on the sand AND in the Gulf. Trust us, you want to be part of this photo.
