SSCA is joining other cruising organizations like Cruising Club of America, Ocean Cruising Club and Cruising Association and asking members to support the Coastal Clean-up Campaign. This campaign is a worldwide network of cruising sailors committed to cleaning up the oceans. They have no headquarters and don’t ask for government support, sponsorship or even donations. Their goal is to keep clear plastic washed up onto the coastlines from re-entering the sea so that it doesn’t kill wildlife and enter the food chain. This campaign has a relatively new website, www.coastalcleanup.net, that allows cruisers worldwide to join the effort and help create a database of the plastic that is collected and recycled. Cruising volunteers visit some of the most remote islands, bays and beaches on the planet and wherever they go, they find plastic washed up or discarded littering the coastline and getting washed back into the sea to join the millions of tons already poisoning it. Since cruisers are passionate about keeping the oceans clean and safe for generations to come, this campaign is a natural fit for SSCA members.
