Love Vancouver? Love our oceans? Love meeting cool people?

Then bring your friends and family and come on out to help clean the shoreline around Granville Island and take part in a pot-luck zero-waste picnic.

A Great Canadian Shoreline Clean Up collaboration by Sea Smart, Nada and eXXpedition with the support of many others including Surfrider Foundation who are providing the clean up gear.

This event is in celebration of eXXpedition North Pacific 2018 — a pioneering all-female sailing voyage and scientific research mission to raise awareness of, and solutions for the devastating environmental and health impacts of single use plastic and toxics in the world's oceans. The crew will be in Vancouver having sailed across the North Pacific Gyre from Hawaii and preparing to leave later in the day for Leg 2 of their mission down to Seattle.
