About ILACSD

As San Diego's most influential advocate for sustainability, I Love A Clean San Diego is an environmental catalyst, awakening passion and inspiring action, empowering everyone to improve the health and beauty of our local environment. For over sixty years, we've brought out the best in all of us together for a lasting, positive impact on our region. We are passion in action.

Why Support the Environment?

Environmental work is more important now than ever before, as evidenced by society’s growing interest in, and reliance upon, our natural resources and open spaces including California’s rivers, bays, and coastlines.  The health of our ocean and waterways directly impacts the success of California’s business interests, and ultimately the economy.  Be a part of the solution while giving back to the community.

What is the Creek to Bay Cleanup?

The Creek to Bay Cleanup is a countywide event boasting an excess of 100 cleanup locations, each staffed by trained volunteer site captains.  The mission of the event is to engage community members in removing debris from San Diego’s beaches, waterways, canyons, and parks.  This cleanup strives to reach a diversified cross-section of San Diego County, with half coastal and half inland locations, emphasizing the fact that almost 80% of marine debris originates inland.  All of these areas are integral parts of San Diego’s eleven watersheds, and every piece of litter is a potential piece of marine debris.  Inland volunteers help to illustrate one of the event’s key messages:  We are connected to the coast and oceans by our rivers, streams, and storm drains.  The solution to ocean pollution is litter prevention and protection of all areas throughout the watershed.

Last year, at the Creek to Bay Cleanup, 6,400 dedicated volunteers cleaned 225 miles of shoreline and inland areas at 111 sites, removing a total of 150,000 pounds of debris.  This impressive turnout removed one of the largest amounts of trash on record, emphasizing the necessity of this cleanup each year.  I Love A Clean San Diego anticipates an even bigger turnout in 2016 with successes topping results from last year’s event.

Why Support the Creek to Bay Cleanup?

As economic factors cause local jurisdictions to cut funding to certain programs, the importance of volunteerism has increased dramatically. Park maintenance departments are stretched thin, and aren't able to spend the necessary time to clean up and maintain local beaches, parks, and open space areas. ILACSD believes it's a more judicial use of time and resources to engage volunteers to clean their own communities rather than lobby the government for additional funds. Show your dedication to community enhancement and the environment in San Diego County by supporting the Creek to Bay Cleanup.
