The United by Blue Cleanup Crew packed up their supplies and headed out the coast of Southern California to join up with REI stores and local conservation partners for a series of 4 waterway cleanups just outside of Los Angeles.

On our first stop, United by Blue was joined by REI Tustin and the Newport Bay Conservancy for a cleanup of the Upper Newport Bay.The Newport Bay and surrounding wetlands make up Southern California’s largest natural remaining estuaries, providing a rich and diverse ecosystem for birds, fish, and other mammals. 136 volunteers worked for 2 hours in the wetlands of the bay, picking small bits of styrofoam and plastic debris. In total they were able to remove 316 pounds of trash! Among the small pieces of garbage, the volunteers founds some weird trash, as well, including a toy chicken, an eroding flip flop and multiple tennis balls!

Special thanks to REI Tustin and Newport Bay Conservancy for all of their knowledge and support!
