By Staff | Sep 14, 2017

Malama Maui Nui reported that volunteers collected almost 9,000 pounds of litter during last year’s “Get the Drift and Bag It!” campaign.

LAHAINA – West Maui Kumuwai will host a cleanup as part of International Coastal Cleanup Day and the month-long “Get the Drift and Bag It!” campaign at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, at Mala Wharf.

Bring a water bottle, solid shoes and sun protection. For more information, contact Tova at (808) 214-4239.

West Maui Kumuwai is once again excited to participate in the global effort to collect data on litter and pollution.

The “Get the Drift and Bag It!” campaign, spearheaded by local nonprofit Malama Maui Nui, encourages the public to partake in citizen science.

Any data gathered during the campaign will be added into the Ocean Conservancy’s database and will later be used to help solve the issues currently threatening the health of our oceans.
