Zero Waste Chicago meet-up: Beach Clean-up

  • 31st Street Beach 3100 S Lake Shore Dr Chicago, IL 60616 (map)

Join us for our August community meet-up! We'll be partnering with the Alliance for the Great Lakes to do a beach clean-up at 31st Street Beach. In addition to cleaning up the beach, our work will also help the Alliance track the amount and types of trash on the beach.

Come anytime after 5:30 (but before 7:30) - everyone can start separately as they get there, so no need to get there perfectly on time. We'll meet at Pier 31, right off the bike path. One of us will be there at all times to greet you; just look for the "Zero Waste Chicago" sign. We'll provide bags, gloves, and everything else you'll need!

Please make sure to RSVP here on Facebook (or by sending a quick email to if you don't have Facebook), so that we can sign you up on the Alliance for the Great Lakes website! Feel free to email us too with any questions about the event.

The site is accessible via the lakeshore bike path or public transportation; parking is also available nearby. We hope to see you there - all are welcome!
